Sea-Floor Sunday #15: Online photo archive of the North Atlantic sea floor

March 22, 2008

I usually show bathymetry images for Sea-Floor Sunday, but I saw this on Deep Sea News the other day and then spent a bunch of time checking out all the photographs on the Deepseascape.org website.

The photo below (from this archive) shows a sandy bottom with ripples and distinct animal trace (future trace fossil?). This is from the Faroe Bank Channel off the northwestern coast of the UK.

The site has an interactive map for searching for images. Some of the locations don’t have images associated just yet, but there’s plenty of deep sea floor photographs to be found.

Happy Easter.
