Summary

Conductivity, temperature, and salinity data were collected from two offshore submarine pockmarks, Miami Pockmark and Key Biscayne Pockmark. A series of dives were performed to gather conductivity, temperature, and salinity data using an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) with a Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CDT) instrument. These data were collected between May 5-8, 2016 using a Bluefin B12 AUV equipped with a CDT and an onboard calibrated Kearfott T-24 Inertial Navigation System (INS) aided by a GPS Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), 600 kHz RDI Doppler Velocity Log (DVL) and a Valeport sound velocity meter. The conductivity, temperature, and salinity data collected from Miami Pockmark and Key Biscayne Pockmark are displayed [...]
