  The New England Seamount Chain (NESC) underlies the Gulf Stream in the northeastern part of region 2 and in the southwestern part of region 3, possibly accentuating large-scale GS meandering.   The New England Seamount chain is an underwater chain of seamounts in the Atlantic Ocean stretching over 1, km from the edge of the Georges Bank off the coast of Massachusetts. Notable Seamounts of Atlantic (Contd) The chain consists of over twenty extinct volcanic peaks, many rising over 4, m from the seabed.

Coral formations grow on the rocky outcrops, resembling underwater forests that provide shelter for invertebrates and fish. Due to the expense and difficulties of studying the deep ocean, little was known of the creatures that inhabited the New England nates: 37°24′N 60°00′W / °N.

Seamount chains in the Pacific basin tend to be aligned northwesterly, and several chains are intimately associated with fracture zones; the Eltanin Fracture Zone in the southwestern Pacific is an example. At least one seamount chain, the New England Seamounts, lies in the northwestern Atlantic.

This group of at least thirty- two submarine volcanoes is known as the New England, or Kelvin seamount chain, and their structure has recently been reviewed by Uchupi et al. This present study focuses on the Gilliss, a recently discovered seamount in the southeastern limb of the Kelvin seamount chain, which previously has been surveyed.

A hot spot model is preferred with the Kelvin‐New England seamount chain and the Corner seamounts forming as the North American plate moved over the hot spot in the mantle. Great Meteor, Cruiser, and Plato seamounts were formed in the eastern basin when the migrating mid‐Atlantic ridge reached the hot spot in Late Cretaceous time.

A marine magnetic survey is the measurement of Earth's magnetic field intensity or its components (such as vertical component) along a series of profiles over an area of interest with the objective of measuring the magnetism of the ocean floor.

A bathymetric and magnetic survey was conducted in the Corner seamounts area, northwest North Atlantic. From the magnetic data the area is dated as Late Cretaceous, and the bathymetric data reveal two different trend directions which indicate a major change in the. Modern marine magnetic surveys involve measuring the Earth's total magnetic field while towing a magnetometer behind a moving ship.

The magnetometer is now standard equipment on most marine surveys (see Sea Surveys) and is complementary to other geophysical systems such as seismic profilers, echo sounders (see Acoustic Surveys), and gravimeters. Modern marine magnetometers provide a.

The goal of the survey was to determine the suitability of the site as a location for the U.S. Navy’s new Electro-Magnetic Field Measurement (EMFM) System, consisting of several stationary magnetic and electric field measurement [ ] Articles, Resources Marine Magnetometer Said To Minimise Seismic Interference Risk.

In the North Atlantic Ocean, the New England Seamount Chain extends from the eastern coast of the United States to the mid-ocean ridge. Craig and Sandwell () noted that clusters of larger Atlantic seamounts tend to be associated with other evidence of hotspot activity, such as on the Walvis Ridge, Bermuda Islands and Cape Verde Islands.

Various maritime survey methods, such as sonar, optical and magnetic technologies [], are used for locating submerged magnetic surveys have been successfully used for mapping marine ferrous targets [], for magnetic mapping of contaminated seabed sediments [], and for mapping archeological structures [].Of the various technologies used for seabed.

Oceanic crust - Oceanic crust - Marine magnetic anomalies: Marine magnetic anomalies were first discovered off the coast of the western United States in the late s and completely baffled scientists.

The anomalies were charted from southern California to northern Washington and out several hundred kilometres.

Using such instruments, Scripps Institute of Oceanography discovered magnetic stripes in the seaoor in the s. This led to the understanding of seaoor spreading and the reversal of the Earths magnetic field approximately everyyears [11].
