Equipment Used
Datasonics Model BPS-530
Purpose
To fill in some data gaps from previous cruises, and to
better define the position and extent of some of the offshore
moraines.
Summary
Various combinations of sources and hydrophones were tried.
None yielded the results required to complete this work. The data
are generally poor (Huntec did better than Datasonics). Seismic
lines 4 (1340 hrs., Loran line 43950, North of Plum Island) and 6
(1540 hrs., Loran line 26220) have some interesting sections. All
paper records, navigation tapes and notes are archived at the Long
Island Sound Resource Center, UCONN-Avery Point.
Notes
2 days at sea.
Data types: Seismic tracklines, navigation
Navigation technique: Loran-C
