The first joint PO/seismic data survey

In 2003 we obtained funding from the NSF Physical Oceanography program to supplement our scheduled Storegga slide seismic survey with about 120 expendable PO instruments:  XBT's (expendable bathythermographs) and XCTD's (expendable conductivity-temperature-depth sensors).


The first results of this survey were published by graduate student Papia Nandi in GRL (download here).  Her work provided the first real calibration of seismic oceanography, by correlating seismic reflections to a densely sampled oceanic temperature structure.
