  Description:
    Abstract:
      Chief Scientists: Pat Hart, Jon Childs. Deep-Crustal
      Seismic data (seismograph, YoNav, GPS) of field activity
      M-1-97-SF in San Francisco Bay from 08/31/1997 to 09/15/1997,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/m/m197sf/html/m-1-97-sf.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 -

      seismograph                   dfs-v seismograph

      YoNav

      GPS                           Differential GPS

      Notes -

      See also A-1-97-SF (Auriga)

      The 1997 Bay Area Seismic Imaging Experiment (BASIX-III) was the latest

      in a series of USGS deep-crustal seismic reflection studies of the fault

      geometry and crustal structure of the San Francisco Bay Area.  The specific

      goal of BASIX-III was to investigate a 15 to 25 km deep zone of

      high-amplitude seismic reflectivity that has been interpreted as a possible

      sub-horizontal detachment linking the San Andreas and Hayward Faults.  A

      twelve air gun source array, deployed from the M/V Auriga and a 2400 meter

      hydrophone streamer deployed from the R/V William A. McGaw were used for

      the data acquisition.  The streamer was laid directly on the bay floor at

      five separate locations in San Francisco, San Pablo, and Suisun Bays and

      remained stationary for two days at each recording site.  The air gun array

      was towed past the streamer and out to offsets of 25 km and fired at

      approximately 150 to 200 meter intervals. When data processing is

      completed, the resulting images should better define the structural

      relationship of the lower crustal reflective layer and the vertical

      strike-slip faults that comprise the Pacific-North American plate boundary.


      Similar information is available for thousands
      of other USGS/CMG-related Activities.

      If known, available are Activity-specific
      navigation, gravity, magnetics, bathymetry,
      seismic, and sampling data; track maps; and
      equipment information; as well as summary
      overviews, crew lists, and information
      about analog materials.

      If available, access to physical samples is
      described in the "WR CMG Sample Distribution
      Policy" at:
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/programs/html/main/sample-dist-policy.html
