Thick black lines are navigated dive tracks. c Dive 650 traverse up the north-facing secondary detachment footwall and the fault breakaway zone separating it from the primary detachment fault footwall at the north end of the Atlantis Bank gabbro massif. Profiles represent distance along track, rather than a straight line up a constant azimuth. Scientific divers H. Kumagai and M. Cheadle as indicated on the cross-sections
