Location: Peace River, Myaha River, Charlotte Harbor, Florida, Gulf of Mexico, United States, North America, North Atlantic;
Principal Investigator(s): Richard E. Sylwester
Affiliate Investigator(s): P. Heine - WRD-Connecticut; R. Wolinski - WRD-Florida
Data Type(s): Seismics: Boomer, Seismics: Sparker
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Map shallow limestone aquifers (60-200 feet) in Peace River, Myaha River, and Charlotte Harbor, Florida.
Start Date: 1980-02-04
End Date: 1980-02-10
Equipment Used: EG&G 234, Teledyne single-channel 300-500J 40-tip minisparker, Single channel hydrophone
Information to be Derived: Sea floor map;
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Nonlinear hydrophone array gave extremely good high-resolution/deep penetration data. Standard linear array (15 phones 12 inches apart) provided poor resolution in the upper 20-50 feet, although the deeper data (150 feet) were good. On a small boat (21 ft. whaler), lash Uniboom to one side and tow hydrophone off opposite side, not extending back past stern due to prop noise.
