Other ID: FER 94-3
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts Bay, Stellwagen Bank, Tillies Bank, Tillies Basin, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic;
Principal Investigator(s): Robert N. Oldale, Richard Rendigs
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Air Gun / Water Gun, Seismics: Boomer
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Collection of seismic reflection data for determining the geologic framework of Stellwagen Bank, Tillies Bank and Tillies Basin.
Start Date: 1994-10-18
Start Port/Location: Provincetown, MA
End Date: 1994-10-22
End Port/Location: Provincetown, MA
Equipment Used: DGPS, Water gun (wh), Boomer, Single channel hydrophone
Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: The cruise was very successful in accomplishing all the original "landslide" expectations for total trackline coverage. Data quality was excellent and overall resolution of the reflectors was enhanced by displaying the data on two channels of the EPC recorder at different sweep rates. Interpretation of the acoustic basement reflectors should be possible from this data set resulting in a more complete understanding of the geologic framework of Stellwagen Bank. Transect lines: 32.
