RIDGE Multibeam Synthesis Project

An online database of multibeam images and digital terrain models of the ocean floor. Users preview ridge system data by clicking on a map or by selecting from a drop down list. About 15 ridge systems are available for viewing at varying levels of data detail or for downloading in .CDF or .HDF format.
