This cruise used the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Jason II to: explore 4-6 new sites for the occurrence of deep water coral reefs; made collections of Lophelia and other corals for genetic and physiological studies, made collections of communities associated with Lophelia and other corals for ecological studies; collected quantitative digital imagery for characterization of sites and coral communities; collect spatially explicit physical near bottom oceanographic data; deploy cameras and microbial arrays; reposition larval traps and current meters; collected push cores; and conducted a series of linked archeological/ biological investigations on deep water shipwrecks.

Supplemental Information
The NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research sponsored the collection of these data.

Lophelia II 2009 Exploration produced the following data: Multibeam Bathymetric Data, Ship Navigation Data (Gyro and GPS), Ship Sensor Data (CTD, Wind, Barometer, Fluorometer, Rain, Winch, Speed), and Submersible Sensor Data (ADCP and CTD).
Purpose This dataset is available to the public for a wide variety of uses including scientific research and analysis.
