Equipment Used
Seismic reflection
SubX (234 kHz)
Edgetech 424
Klein 3000
Re-mapping of pockmark field to determine morphological
change (if any) and to refine subbottom structure.
Information to be Derived
Sea Floor Map
Bathymetric Maps
Swath bathymetry and backscatter from sidescan sonar: 8 days
of data collection, 340 km of tracklines, water depths 3-90 m;
Seismic reflection profiles: 3 days of data collection, 109 km of
tracklines; Sound velocity profiles: 15.
10 days at sea.
Data types: Seismic
Navigation technique: RTK-DGPS
Seismic reflection system failed after three days due to
software problems (SB Logger).  Very frustrating.
