Field Activity Details for field activity 1975-001-FA

Other ID: FLOR FC A, Legs 1 and 2; FLOR FC B

Status: Completed

Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center

Funding Program(s):

Location: Blake Plateau, Southeast Georgia Embayment, United States, North America, North Atlantic;

Principal Investigator(s): William Dillon

Affiliate Investigator(s): Jean-Pierre Fail, Institut Francais du Petrole (IFP)

Information Specialist(s): Nancy K. Soderberg

Data Type(s): Electro-Magnetic: Gravity, Electro-Magnetic: Magnetics, Imagery: Photo, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Multichannel, Sonar: Single Beam

Scientific Purpose/Goals: This cruise was carried out as part of a cooperative study by the USGS and the Institute Francais du Petrole (IFP) to collect DEP seismic profiles, gravity, magnetics, and refraction profiling data on the Blake Plateau, Southeast Georgia Embayment.

Vehicle(s):

Start Date: 1975-01-07

Start Port/Location: Miami, FL

End Date: 1975-04-26

End Port/Location: Miami, FL

Equipment Used: Gravity meter (wh), Marine magnetometer, Loran-C, 35 mm camera, Multichannel seismics, 12 kHz

Information to be Derived:

Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: CDP multichannel seismic data: 10 lines (FC-1 thru FC-10).

Staff: Kenneth Bayer, William Dillon, Perry Parks

Affiliate Staff:
Robert Goldsborough - WHOI (Jan. 7-21
1975); Constantine Tollios - WHOI (Jan. 7-13
1975); Various IFP personnel (entire cruise)

Notes: USGS personnel participated in FC A Legs 1 (7-13 Jan. 1975) and 2 (15-21 Jan. 1975). Because the cruise was ended due to the breakdown of equipment, the IFP agreed to carry out further profiling in mid-April. Lines FC-8, FC-9 and FC-10 and a repeat of Line FC-3 were collected April 17-25, 1975, by the IFP aboard the FLORENCE. Original Center People field contained: Bill Dillon - Ch. Sci. (Jan. 7-21, 1975); Perry Parks (Jan. 7-21, 1975); Kenneth Bayer (Jan. 15-21, 1975).
