Crew
Guy Cochrane Chief Scientist, USGS Western Region
Equipment Used
sonobuoy
Purpose
To collect 10 meter resolution
seismic data and piston cores in the Paleogene and Neogene
section in the Eastern Basin to improve our understanding of
the relationship between the timing of the Antarctic Cenozoic
glacial, glacio-eustatic, and global climatic events.
Summary
Collected 46 refraction records at 27 sites on the Ross Sea continental shelf of Antarctica
Notes
(from USGS Bulletin, 1/20/95)
A multi-institutional group.  Guy is collecting sonobouy seimic-
refraction data in conjunction with the high-resolution reflection
data collection in order to help identify areas of outcropping
older sediment and improve his models of ice-loading related
sediment over consolidation.  The sonobouys displayed a 50%
failure rate but are deployed two at a time successfully.
