Description:
Abstract:
University of Mississippi,United States Geological Survey, Menlo Park, California. Chief Scientists: Alan Cooper, Thomas McGee. Geophysical and Seismic Reflection data (Huntec, watergun, bottomseismometer, generatorinjectorgun, YoNav, 24channel) of field activity M-1-98-GM in Gulf of Mexico - Mississippi Canyon from 06/08/1998 to 06/20/1998, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/m/m198gm/html/m-1-98-gm.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 -
Huntec
watergun
bottomseismometer
generatorinjectorgun GI-guns (small and large)
YoNav
24channel
Notes -
The R/V Tommy Munro is owned and operated by the Univ. of Southern
Mississippi Institute of Marine Sciences. The ship operates out of Biloxi,
Mississippi. The cruise was a cooperative venture between the USGS and the
Univ. of Mississippi (McGee), USGS-MMRI cruise.
