  Description:
    Abstract:
      United States Geological Survey, Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
      Chief Scientists: Debbie Hutchinson, Ruth Jackson, Geological
      Survey of Canada. Seismic profiling data (multichannel
      seismic) of field activity 08010 (L-1-08-AR) in Amerasian
      (Canada) Basin, Arctic Ocean from 08/21/2008 to 10/03/2008,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/l/l108ar/html/l-1-08-ar.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 -

      multichannel seismic

      Notes -

      Related field activity:

      H-2-08-AR

      43 days at sea.

      Data types: Seismic

      Bathymetry

      Seismic reflection and refraction + supporting measurements

      for accurate bathymetry (e.g., XCTD and SVP)

      *** Availability of Seismic Data - Until the date that Canada

      submits its extended continental shelf limits to the Commission on

      the Limits of the Continental Shelf (by December 6, 2013), the

      seismic data will not be released to other researchers except by

      mutual consent of both GSC and USGS.  After that date and up to

      December 6, 2016, if the data have not been publicly released,

      researchers interested in the data for scientific purposes can

      submit a request to Natural Resources Canada (Geological Survey of

      Canada, (GSC)) to obtain copies of the data.  Upon consultation with

      USGS about use of the data, GSC should not unreasonably withhold

      permission to use the data as long as it is for scientific purposes

      and involves collaboration with GSC or USGS in their use and

      publication of results.  The data should be fully publicly released

      with no restrictions on its use after December 6, 2016.  Seismic

      data include seismic reflection and refraction data collected using

      equipment from Louis S. St. Laurent. Until public release, the

      official copy of these data are held at NRCan, Earth Sciences

      Sector. After public release, the data will be available through

      NRCan, Earth Sciences Sector.   *** Availability of Singlebeam

      Echosounder Data - Data outside of the Canadian 200-nm limit are

      available through the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Data

      inside the 200-nm limit are considered proprietary under release

      policy of the seismic data (see above). Until public release, the

      official copy of these data will be held at DFO, Canadian

      Hydrographic Service (CHS). After public release, the data will be

      available through CHS.    *** Availability of Other Data -  Other

      data collected during the LSSL cruise, such as navigation, gravity,

      velocimeter profiles, CTD casts for water velocity, and ice imagery

      are considered supporting data that are included in cruise reports

      and other documentation as public information.  Theyare not

      necessarily formally released but will be supplied upon request to

      either GSC or CHS.
