Supplementary data:


The expedition POS491 with the Poseidon took place from the 05.10.2015 – 09.10.2015 in
the western Baltic Sea and started and finished in Kiel. As part of the marine geophysical
exercise of the Christian Albrecht University of Kiel the students were introduced to scientific
data acquisition on a research vessel. After the trip the students collected preliminary results.
The surveyed area was primarily in Eckernförde Bay north of known pockmark sites. First a
zone was mapped with the multibeam echo sounder, sediment echo sounder and the side scan
sonar. Later an additional seismic profile was created with a p-cable set up. On the fourth day
five ocean bottom seismometers were deployed to determine the seismic velocities of the
seismic layers. Though only one OBS collected usable data.
