Other ID: GY-83-12
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: Carolina Trough, offshore Florida, southern Blake Plateau, United States, North America, North Atlantic;
Principal Investigator(s): Anne M. Trehu
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Air Gun / Water Gun, Seismics: Multichannel, Seismics: Ocean Bottom Seismometer, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Collect airgun ocean-bottom seismometer (OBIP) refraction and multichannel reflection data along lines to be used for long range explosive refraction profiles next spring, in an effort to determine the structure of the crust beneath the Carolina Trough and in the transition zone from the marginal basin to oceanic crust.
