The maps below represent the three types of data were are collecting in this survey, magnetics, gravity, and bathymetry. It is interesting to see how the magnetics and gravity mimic the topography of the seafloor, called bathymetry. In both the magentics (fig. A) and gravity (fig. B) maps you are able to pick out the main seafloor topographic structures. In both figures A and B the most prominent reddish colored structure is the Reykjanes Ridge which extends above sea level at the Reykjanes Peninsula.
