Start Date: 2012-10-09
Start Port/Location: Ocean City, MD
End Date: 2012-10-16
End Port/Location: Ocean City, MD

Information to be Derived: Morphology;
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: 72-ch high resolution sparker MCS collected aboard the M/V Tiki along the Currituck submarine landslide. Over 800 line-km were collected. Depth control birds on the seismic streamer failed and we had to use lead weights. Some statics corrections will be necessary during processing.
