Purpose
Geology and resources of the Solomon Islands region of the
South Pacific.
Information to be Derived
Seismic reflection profiles, bathymetry, gravity, lithology.
Summary
Approximately 3,500 km of 24-channel seismic-reflection profiles
in the Solomon Islands region of the South Pacific. The seismic energy source
consisted of a tuned array of five airguns with a total volume of 1,313 cu. in.
of air compressed to approximately 1,900 psi.  The recording system consisted of
a 24-channel, 2400-m long streamer with a group interval of 100 m, and
a GUS (Global Universal Science) model 4200 digital recording instrument.  Shots
were fired every 50 m with 100-m group intervals. Navigational control for the
survey was provided by a Magnavox-integrated navigation system using transit
satellites and Doppler sonar.  A 2-msec sampling rate was used in the field and
the data were later desampled to 4 msec during the demultiplexing process.
A 10-sec data length was recorded, which, combined with a deep-water delay,
yielded up to 16 sec of two-way travel time. The sequence of processing of data
was editing-demultiplexing, velocity analysis, CDP stacking,
deconvolution-filtering, and plotting on an electrostatic plotter.
