Other ID: P-4-85
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, United States, Caribbean Sea, North America, North Atlantic;
Principal Investigator(s): Gail Kineke
Affiliate Investigator(s): Byron Ruppel, USGS-Menlo Park
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Air Gun / Water Gun, Seismics: Boomer
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Collect high-resolution single-channel seismic reflection data near Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. This endeavor was secondary to the collection of gravity data by the USGS-Menlo Park personnel for the Defense Mapping Agency (DMA). This report covers the seismic reflection aspects of the cruise.
