The long-range scientific interests of this work are in the geology of the ocean floor, particularly the processes controlling the generation and modification of oceanic lithosphere and their effects on abyssal morphology and character. Remote sensing acoustic optical instrumentation continues to play a fundamental role in determining the shape and nature of the seafloor. Therefore, understanding what the data from survey instrumentation are truly telling us about the seafloor morphology and structure is a major scientific objective.
