Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Subbottom profiler data acquired in the Amerasian Basin of the Arctic Ocean reveal the acoustic characteristics of seafloor sediments. These characteristics can be mapped to determine the distribution of different sediment types and processes in the basin. This poster presents a map of acoustic facies along with examples of subbottom profiler data to describe the surficial geology of the Amerasian Basin.
