Abstract : One of the prime reasons for the Crest'91 Project was to initiate the transition of the JASON/MEDEA system from its developmental (sunken ship-finding) phase to its operational phase by demonstrating to potential users, the range and effectiveness of the system in carrying out fine scale seafloor research. The field portion of Project Crest was designed to explore capabilities of the remotely operated vehicles JASON/MEDEA/AMS 120, configured with a fiber optic tether, to conduct efficient, multisensor, multiscalar mapping at the regional, local, and fine scales on a 16 km Endeavour Segment of the Northern Juan de Fuca Ridge.
