Location of structures resulting from the submarine fluids emissions, such as: mud volcanoes (methane hydrates); Pockmaks (methane) and hydrothermal vents (fluids enriched in salts and metallic elements), located between the Mid-Atlantic Rift zone (Azores archipelago) and the continental margin.
This layer provides geographic information related to a Omega calcite saturation in the seabed of the Azores (Orr 2005)
The FREEZE 2010 geophysical cruise was planned to acquire a detailed bathymetry just off Olhos d'Agua, high resolution seismic and Side Scan Sonar data in order to investigate and define the geological and the tectonic settings off Olhos d'Agua (Algarve coast, South Portugal) and to find any possible evidence of supposed existing submarine groundwater discharges (SGDs) in this area.

The Tagusdelta campaign had technical and scientific objectives. The main technical objective was to make the proof of concept of the new proposed method for the acquisition of 3D very high resolution seismic reflection data. The accomplishment of this objective included: deployment and data acquisition systems tests; positioning uncertainty assessment; seismic and positioning data processing for the 3D seismic volume generation. From the scientific point of view the main objective was to acquire very high resolution seismic reflection data that allow the characterization of the frontal area of the Tagus ebb-tide delta seismic stratigraphic facies arquitecture. A special focus was placed in the: identification, characterization and mapping of mass wasting features, in order to allow a first trial of the Pleisto-Holocene mapping and chronostratigraphy of these features in the Tagus delta; imaging the morphologies of landslide structures with 3D seismic, particularly in what concerns the landslide already identified with the previous data, to allow the quantification and precise location of the events, to generate data of unprecedented realism that can be fed into the tsunamigenic mathematical models.
