Expedition NBP1502B: Whales Deep Basin, Ross Sea continental shelf

Marine geological and geophysical data were acquired from the eastern Ross Sea continental shelf. The geophysical data includes a large area multibeam swath bathymetry plus chirp and three regional dip-oriented seismic lines in the axis of the basin. Core were collected at sixteen stations in the basin from the outer continental shelf to just north of the Ross Ice Shelf calving front. The core types included Kasten and Piston Core types. Seafloor photographs and video were taken at several of the core stations using the Yoyo camera system.
