It has come to our attention that Schmidt Ocean Institute has accrued multiple Google Plus pages over the years. In an effort to streamline our updates, this page will be deleted in the coming week. Please follow us at: plus.google.com/105974962726461357418

The ‪#‎TamuMassif‬ cruise has been tremendously successful having sailed 98% of the planned track lines in an ambitious pre-cruise plan. Now what to do with all that data? Learn more here: http://www.schmidtocean.org/story/show/5178

Now that the mapping is finished and Falkor is on her way back to Guam, take a few moments to learn a little bit more about the maps that were created, and why the team was so interested in the magnetic anomalies of ‪#‎TamuMassif‬:

The science team on Falkor is currently mapping the last lines before heading to Guam. Even though we will be heading home shortly, we will still collect important magnetic data as we head SW to Guam and sail across the magnetic lineations south of ‪#‎TamuMassif‬.

Last November, Research Vessel Falkor discovered a seamount (an underwater mountain). This month the International Hydrographic Organization and UNESCO Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission approved Schmidt Ocean Institute’s application to name the seamount. Falkor Seamount has official been documented and commemorated. http://www.schmidtocean.org/story/show/5111

Bathymetric maps are one piece of the puzzle needed to gain insight on the formation of #TamuMassif. The science team on R/V Falkor just completed their fifth mapping track, and are working hard to fill in as many information gaps as possible.

A scalar magnetometer measures the total strength of the Earth’s magnetic field consisting of solar winds, the Earth’s core, and iron-bearing rocks in the crust. The magnetometer is one of the instruments being used to gain insight as to how #TamuMassif was formed. Learn more here:
