West Flower Gardens Bank
R. Rezak (1), W. R. Bryant
The West Flower Gardens Bank has been the subject of study by the Department of Oceanography at Texas A&M University during the past several years. These studies, conducted from surface oceanographic vessels, have included bathymetric surveys, high resolution sub-bottom profiling, analyses of sediment producing organisms and delineation of sediment facies surrounding the prominence.
The present paper is a report of geological observations obtained during FGORC Mission 72-0605-X, using the Nekton Gamma submersible. Information derived from submersible observations include: 1) verification of the accuracy of sediment distribution patterns as delineated by surface sampling; 2) the occurrence of dead barrier reefs at depths of 180-190, 290-315 and 420-430; and 3) the occurrence of dead patch reefs on terraces behind the barrier reefs.
