NOTE: PLEASE CITE ORIGINAL REFERENCE WHEN USING THESE DATA



SUMMARY

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.

Bathymetric and magnetic data from this cruise are also archived.

The data were contributed by Dr. Alain Bonneville for distribution.
