Information to be Derived
Seismic reflection profiles, gravity, magnetics, bathymetry, side scan,
lithology, underwater photographs.
Summary
2400 km of 24-fold multichannel seismic reflection data were collected
along 37 lines. The seismic source consisted of a tuned, 5 airgun array totaling
1426 cubic inches, pressurized to 2000 psi, towed at a depth of approximately 10
meters.  Individual gun volumes were usually 148, 194, 309, 309, and 466 cubic
inches.  The receiver consisted of a 24 channel hydrophone streamer with 100 
meter group lengths containing 60 hydrophones in each group.  The near channel
offset from the airguns was 297 m and far channel offset 2611 m.  The data were
recorded with a Gus Model HDDR-4200 recording system.  Shots were fired every 50
meters and records were sampled in the field at a 2 millisecond rate prior to
processing.  Primary navigation was by satellite. 2548 nautical miles of
bathymetric data and 2225 nautical miles of gravity data were collected.
