'UK-1 Stratum A' ABYSSLINE biological baseline survey box sited within the UK-1 polymetallic nodule exploration claim. Stratum A is a 30x30km survey box in the northern sector of the 58,000 km2 claim area. Echinoderm sample localities are indicated by green circles from the AB01 RV Melville survey cruise, October 2013.  Inset map A: the site location within the central Pacific, inset map B: all the echinoderm sampling locations (including site 'ROV7' to the west). Both inset maps use GEBCO 2014 bathymetry  (global 30 arc-second interval grid data set)Seafloor bathymetry from the RV Melville ABYSSLINE cruise is shown in the main map.
