  Data and Maps  

NOAA's Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory Vents Program maintains numerous data bases related to the research and exploration of hydrothermal vent processes. Many of the research data sets are provided here to in formats which can be used with GMT, GIS and other software.

  Vents Autochart/Autoseismic Make a bathymetric map with or whithout earthquake location sources overlaid.  

Autochart is a GMT-based custom bathymetric map generator from Vents Programs' Northeast Pacific multibeam data base, satellite-dervied bathymetry or DBDB5 data. Earthquake source locations from NOAA's hydroacoustic monitoring project can also be superimposed on the maps (Autoseismic).
