Description High-resolution Chirp seismic-reflection data were collected offshore south-central California as part of a geophysical survey aboard the NOAA Ship Rainier during two legs at sea, the first from 8/28/2018 to 9/7/2018 and the second from 9/10/2018 to 9/21/2018. The data were collected using an Edgetech 512i towfish with a 1-6 kHz sweep. Consistently high winds and rough seas prevented additional Chirp data collection and caused noisy data in some cases, especially during the second leg of the survey, which largely took place in the southern part of the study area. The Chirp data were post-processed to include filtering and other noise removal corrections. [More]
