Title:
Geophysical data of field activity O-1-99-SC in Southern California from 06/05/1999 to 06/17/1999
Abstract:
Chief Scientist: Bill Normark. Geophysical data (GPS, 12khz, Huntec, airgun, 24channel) of field activity O-1-99-SC in Southern California from 06/05/1999 to 06/17/1999, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/o/o199sc/html/o-1-99-sc.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:

Equipment Used -
GPS DGPS navigation
12khz 12-khz echo sounding
Huntec Huntec DTS
airgun single-channel seismic reflection systems
24channel
Notes -
California continental borderland: Pt Conception to San Dieigo, CA


Lines with tags a, b, c, etc. are all planned lines.
a, b, etc. were added to the full line name
when something in the lab changed during the line
(i.e., for mcs, the blue screen of death or some other problem,
or for huntec, if the paper ran out or the recording disks ran out).
a and b indicators were used independently for mcs and huntec,
so they will can not be correlated between the two systems.


Once or twice we did the a planned line in two segments on different days
(I think 247,247a or 245,245a is one time this happened),
but this will show up on with the time indicators.


The tags "dl" or "dm" mean dog legs, between planned lines.
MCS may have been on during this time, but probably were not recorded.
"dm" was used as a,b was noted above.


99l: planned line on the 085 degree or 040 degree trends
(I'm not sure of the actual orientation of the lines, so don't quote me.)
In general (but not every time) MCS was on for these.
There are a couple of exceptions.


99n: Huntec-only lines run at night in any orientation.
