Information to be Derived
Seismic reflection profiles, bathymetry, lithology, gravity.
Summary
Approximately 2400 km of 24-fold multichannel seismic reflection
data were collected along 40 lines.  The seismic source consisted of a tuned, 5
airgun array totaling 1311 cubic inches, pressurized to 2000 psi, towed at a
depth of approximately 10.5 meters.  Individual gun volumes were usually 148,
194, 194, 309, and 466 cubic inches.  The receiver consisted of a 24 channel
hydrophone 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 but resampled to a 4 millisecond
rate prior to processing.  Primary navigation was by satellite. 2375 nautical
miles of bathymetry data, 2216 nautical miles of magnetic data, and 2302
nautical miles of gravity data.
