NGDC Data Set G02886
NOTE: PLEASE CITE ORIGINAL REFERENCE WHEN USING THESE DATA
Data were gathered by the R/V Marion Dufresne in May and June of 1992 over the Mascarene Ridge in the Indian Ocean on cruise MD72/MASCAFLUX. Heat flow measurements for 96 in-situ readings including both thermal conductivity and thermal gradient were recorded along two profiles perpendicular to the mascarene ridge.
NGDC also archives bathymetric and magnetic data from the cruise in the GEODAS geophysical data management system.
Data correspond to:Bonneville, et al., EOS, 73, 43, p. 542, 1992.
andBonneville, A., R.P. Von Herzen and F. Lucazeau, Heat flow over Reunion hot spot track: additional evidence for thermal rejuvenation of oceanic lithosphere, Journal of Geophysical Research, 1995.
The data were sent to NGDC by Dr. Alain Bonneville for distribution.
SEARCHABLE DATA INVENTORY
NGDC/WDC GMG, Boulder archives a wide variety of digital marine geology data collections, paper reports, microfilm, etc. containing sediment and hardrock data. Many of the digital files are available for direct download. Sample-by-sample inventory information for all data, regardless of format available from NGDC are fully searchable through the marine geology inventory (GEOLIN).
