Other ID: none
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic;
Principal Investigator(s): Thomas O'Brien
Data Type(s): Seismics: Multichannel, Seismics: Sonobouy, Seismics: Boomer, Location-Elevation: Navigation
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Shallow water, high-resolution reflection and refraction seismology utilizing an explosive sound source, 3-axis geophone and single hydrophone sensors, and a sonobuoy telemetry system. Additionally, a USGS ocean-bottom seismograph was deployed.
Start Date: 1984-11-08
Start Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
End Date: 1984-11-08
End Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
Equipment Used: Multichannel seismics, Seismic refraction, ORE GeoPulse, Loran-C, Del Norte, transponder net
Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: All equipment worked well. There seems to be an electronic coupling problem between the geophone system and the sonobuoy transmitters. This problem will be addressed this winter and the experiment will be attempted again in Spring of 1985.
