Information about dive activities were recorded into the Cruise Information Management System (CIMS) by the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration's data manager during the "Life on the Edge 2003: Exploring Deep Ocean Habitats" expedition, August 16 through 27, 2003. Information contained in CIMS includes submersible, remotely operated vehicle, autonomous underwater vehicle, and SCUBA operational information and a summary of scientific observations during each dive; ship activity information (positions, transits, and visitor shuttles); sample information; water column and bottom conditions; weather observations; sea state observations; education and outreach activity information; media event information; scientific instrumentation information; transect information; dive site profiles; and a record of all data collected by principal investigators. The data presented here are the tables from the original CIMS which is a FileMaker Pro database.
