Map showing seafloor bathymetry of ARSRP region with bold black lines indicating ridge segment boundaries.

Sea surface magnetic field data were collected over the west flank of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge between 25N and 27N as part of the ONR (Office of Naval Research) Acoustic Reverberation Study Research Project (ARSRP). The magnetic research on this area has now been published in the Journal of Geophysical Research vol. 103, Aug. 1998. Some figures from the paper are shown below.
