Abstract

A small part (300 km (super 2) ) of the 2-km-deep summit of Horizon Guyot, a flat-topped submarine ridge at the eastern end of the Mid-Pacific Mountains, was surveyed in detail with a deeply towed instrument package. This followed up the work of several earlier Scripps Institution of Oceanography expeditions to the same feature. Three hundred and fifty stereo pairs of bottom photographs were taken, intensive coring and rock dredging were carried out, and near-bottom current meters were deployed.
