Abstract:
United States Geological Survey, Corpus Christi, Texas. Chief Scientists: Louis Garrison, Neil Kenyon. Data (sidescansonar, airgun, 10khz, loranc, transitsatellite, xbt) of field activity 82005 (F-7-82-GM) in Gulf Mexico from 02/02/1982 to 02/24/1982, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/f/f782gm/html/f-7-82-gm.meta.html>.
Purpose:
These data and information are intended for science researchers, students from elementary through college, policy makers, and general public.
Supplemental_Information:

Equipment Used -
sidescansonar GLORIA 6.5 kHz sidescan sonar system
airgun Bolt 1900 airgun, 40 and 80 cu in
10khz 10 khz subbottom profiler
loranc Northstar 6000 Loran C
transitsatellite Magnavox MX 1107 satellite navigator
xbt XBT Expendable Bathythermograph
Notes -
DATA ACQUIRED:
&nbsp;&nbsp;
4,126 nautical miles of tracklines were run with the systems listed
above.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
Data consist of:
&nbsp;&nbsp;
1) GLORIA:
&nbsp;&nbsp;
a) 12 reels of 9-track digital magnetic tapes
&nbsp;&nbsp;
b) 12 reels of analog magnetic tapes
&nbsp;&nbsp;
c) 464 photo negatives, speed rectified side scan data
&nbsp;&nbsp;
d) shipboard monitor records, photo prints
&nbsp;&nbsp;
2) Airgun:
&nbsp;&nbsp;
a) 59 reels of analog magnetic tape
&nbsp;&nbsp;
b) shipboard monitor records
&nbsp;&nbsp;
3) 10-kHz Echo Sounder
&nbsp;&nbsp;
a) 2 sec. sweep shipboard records
&nbsp;&nbsp;
b) 0.5 sec. sweep shipboard records
&nbsp;&nbsp;
4) Navigation
&nbsp;&nbsp;
a) 50 Northstar cassette recordings from bridge
&nbsp;&nbsp;
b) 19 magnetic tapes from seismic lab
&nbsp;&nbsp;
c) 8 rolls printout from bridge
&nbsp;&nbsp;
d) 4 rolls printout from seismic lab
&nbsp;&nbsp;
e) 1 reel digital 9-track tape of Loran C plus satellite
fixes with water depths
&nbsp;&nbsp;
5) XBT:
&nbsp;&nbsp;
69 XBT recordings
&nbsp;&nbsp;
The cruise collected 3,731 nautical miles of data on the Continental
Slope in 17 days for the USGS, and in 2 additional days, collected 395
nautical miles for an IPOD site survey on the Mississippi Fan. The IPOD data
will be deposited in the IPOD data bank when processing is completed.
