<p>
There is a problem with the navigation file not matching
the SEG-Y data.
We are aware of a discrepancy between the seismic data and
the shotpoint navigation.
WesternGeco has reviewed their digital database,
and have concluded that they cannot provide navigation.
We are hopeful that we can obtain the navigation from MMS,
but have not been able yet to locate it yet.
Obviously this would be a valuable survey if the navigation
were available.
We will continue our efforts to acquire it.

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>
Primary access to the USGS/CMG Information Bank's digital data, analog data, and metadata is provided through... <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/>
This page accomodates a variety of search approaches (e.g., by platform, by region, by scientist, by equipment type, etc.).
