K-1-93-HW Seismic Profiles, Trackline 6a

High resolution 3.5 kHz profile from line 6 over the active South Oahu disposal site. Note how the seafloor here differs from that at the former Honolulu Harbor site (trackline profiles 4 and 5a). Note the lateral discontinuity in seafloor reflectivity as shown by the subtle variation in the color of the seafloor reflector from dark purple to lighter purple.
