Purpose
Supplement existing Chirp subbottom profiles in Buzzards Bay and
Vineyard Sound with deeper penetration Boomer profiling system. These data
will contribute to a more complete geologic framework for the Mass CZM
mapping program.
Information to be Derived
Seismic stratigraphy
Summary
Approximately 140-line km of seismic data were collected in Buzzards
                  Bay and Vineyard Sound. A boomer source, Geometrics 8-channel GeoEel 
        and
                  acquisition stem was used. Digital seismic-reflection data were acquired
                  in SEG-Y or SEG-D format. Navigation was DGPS and was logged in raw 
        Hypack
         format.
