Archive of Digital Boomer Seismic Reflection Data Collected During USGS Cruises 94GFP01, 95GFP01, 96GFP01, 97GFP01, and 98GFP02 in Lakes Pontchartrain, Borgne, and Maurepas, Louisiana, 1994-1998

Description The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the University of New Orleans, the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the University of Georgia, conducted five geophysical surveys of Lakes Pontchartrain, Borgne, and Maurepas in Louisiana from 1994 to 1998. This report serves as an archive of unprocessed digital boomer seismic reflection data, trackline maps, navigation files, observers' logbooks, GIS information, and formal FGDC metadata. In addition, a filtered and gained GIF image of each seismic profile is provided. The archived trace data are in standard Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) SEG-Y format (Barry and others, 1975) and may be downloaded and processed with commercial or public domain software such as Seismic Unix (SU). Examples of SU processing scripts and in-house (USGS) software for viewing SEG-Y headers (Zihlman, 1992) are also provided. Processed profile images, trackline maps, navigation files, Field Activity Collection System (FACS) logs, and formal metadata may be viewed with a web browser, and scanned handwritten logbooks may be viewed with Adobe Reader.

Trackline map of all boomer seismic reflection data collected during USGS Cruises 94GFP01, 95GFP01, 96GFP01, 97GFP01, and 98GFP02. These data were collected in Lakes Pontchartrain, Borgne, and Maurepas in Louisiana between 1994 and 1998. This map is set in geographic coordinates, NAD83 (unprojected) and was created at a scale of 1:680,500. It was created using ESRI GIS software ArcView 3.2 and 8.1, exported to Adobe Illustrator for further editing, and saved in JPEG format. The USGS is not the originator of all layers used in creating this map. The highways layer is a Bureau of Transportation Statistics/Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI) data set. The state layer is an ESRI data set.
