Other ID: 81-G-13
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: Georges Bank, Long Island shelf west of Nantucket Shoals, United States, North America, North Atlantic;
Principal Investigator(s): John S. Schlee, Kim D. Klitgord
Data Type(s): Electro-Magnetic: Gravity, Seismics: Multichannel, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler, Electro-Magnetic: Magnetics, Location-Elevation: Navigation
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Primary purpose was to survey the buried paleoshelf edge along the south side of Georges Bank using the DFS V high-resolution multichannel seismic reflection system. The second objective was to survey the buried grabens along the north side of Georges Bank, south of Martha's Vineyard and Long Island.
Start Date: 1981-08-22
Start Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
End Date: 1981-09-13
End Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
Equipment Used: Multichannel seismics, 3.5 kHz, Geometrics G-856 magnetometer, Bell model XI Pendulous Accelerometer Gravity System, Western Geophysical Integrated Navigation System
Information to be Derived: Morphology;
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: The Georges Bank portion of the survey was not completed due to loss of the streamer. Magnetic and gravity anomaly data were collected to aid interpretation. Gravity: 3100 km; Magnetics: 2350 km; Bathymetry: 2350 km; 3.5 kHz seismics: 2350 km; Multichannel seismics: 2350 km.
