Other ID: FLOR FC A, Legs 1 and 2; FLOR FC B
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
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.
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
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).
