Title:
Geophysical Survey (high-resolution seismic) data of field activity 99FGS01 (G-Q1-99-FL) in Atlantic Ocean (Orchid to Jupiter, FL) from 07/19/1999 to 07/26/1999
Abstract:
United States Geological Survey, St. Petersburg, Florida,Florida Geological Survey. Chief Scientist: Henry Freedenberg. Geophysical Survey (high-resolution seismic) data (Boomer System, GPS) of field activity 99FGS01 (G-Q1-99-FL) in Atlantic Ocean (Orchid to Jupiter, FL) from 07/19/1999 to 07/26/1999, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/g/gq199fl/html/g-q1-99-fl.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:

Equipment Used -
Boomer System
GPS
Notes -
Digital 99FGS01 logs were generated by
A. Forde in June 2012 using the handwritten logs and personal accounts of the crew members.
Boomer System (Applied Acoustic CSP 300 power supply, Huntec pla
te, and Innovative Transducer Inc. (ITI) ST-5 10-channel hydrophones), Triton El
ics International (TEI) Delph Seismic acquisition software version 1.36, and Tri
mble Centurion GPS (running Fugawi software) navigation system with trim_rmc.pln
navigation driver.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
This work was conducted for the Florida Geological Survey.
