Equipment Used
Gas hydrate study
Information to be Derived
Geometry, structure, and stratigraphy of the hydrate zone;  Reflection 
coefficients and estimates of physical properties of the sedimentary section.
Detailed seismic investigation of the gas hydrate stability zone in the Gulf of 
Mexico, using a wide range of very-high frequency seismic data sampled at very 
high rates (16 Khz to 200 Khz)
The R/V Tommy Munro is owned and operated by the Univ. of Southern
Mississippi Institute of Marine Sciences.  The ship operates out of Biloxi,
Mississippi.  The cruise was a cooperative venture between the USGS and the
Univ. of Mississippi (McGee), USGS-MMRI cruise.
