Equipment Used
Seismic reflection-Knudse (n Chirp 3200)
Seismic reflection-boomer
Equipment problems prevented data acquisition on August 18,
but 57 km of Knudsen Chirp seismic-reflection profiles and 17 km of
Uniboom seismic-reflection profiles were collected along tracklines
on August 19-20.
3 days at sea.
Ground-truth NOAA hydrographic survey H11346 of the entrance
to Edgartown Harbor with seismic reflection.  One day primarily
employed the Uniboom system; one day primarily employed the Knudsen
74 kms. of continuous data.
Got Help? For 08034, we would appreciate any information on -- analog materials, contract, days at sea, dive count, information to be derived, kms of navigation, national plan, NGDC Info, owner, project number, publications, purpose, scanned materials, seismic description, station count, station description, submersible, tabulated info.
