Ocean-bottom seismic stations deployed in the North Atlantic Ocean offshore Ireland (red circles) and the ship track of the deployment expedition. Blue square: cruise start, Cobh, near Cork (17 September, 2018). Green square: cruise completion, Galway (4 October, 2018).
Ireland’s offshore area is nearly 10 times greater than its onshore territory. Red line: the border offshore.
Under the water offshore Ireland, there are spectacular mountains and deep valleys, with steep slopes and elevation drops of 3-4 km.
