Map showing the bathymetry data acquired during our July 2017 cruise in the vicinity of “Keli” Ridge and “Edmondson” Seamount. Data collection efforts over several days were designed to complement previous data acquired by R/V <em>Falkor</em> in 2016 and <em>Okeanos Explorer</em> in 2015. Previously acquired datasets are shown as grayscale, and the data acquired this cruise is shown as color bathymetry.
