Description This archive consists of two-dimensional marine seismic reflection profile data collected in the Mississippi River Delta, Atchafalaya River Delta, and Shell Island Pass in southern Louisiana. These data were acquired in April and May of 2001 aboard the R/V G. K. Gilbert. The data are available in a variety of formats, including binary, ASCII, HTML, shapefiles, and GIF and JPEG images. Binary data are in Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) SEG-Y format and may be downloaded for further processing or display. Reference maps and GIF images of the profiles may be viewed with your web browser. The GIS information provided is compatible with ESRI's GIS software. For more information on the seismic surveys see http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/g/g201la/html/g-2-01-la.meta.html These data are also available via GeoMapApp (http://www.geomapapp.org/) and Virtual Ocean ( http://www.virtualocean.org/) earth science exploration and visualization applications.

Trackline map of all boomer data collected during USGS Cruise 01RCE02. These data were collected in Louisiana river deltas in April and May of 2001. This map is in geographic projection and was created at a scale of 1:1,200,000 using ESRI's GIS software ArcView 3.2. The image was exported to Adobe Illustrator for further editing and saved for the web in JPEG format. The USGS is not the originator of all layers used in creating this map. The rivers layer is a LOSCO (Louisiana Oil Spill Coordinator's Office) dataset derived from ESRI/GDT (Geographic Data Technology, Inc.) data that were in turn derived from Bureau of the Census TIGER/Line files. The waterbodies layer is also a LOSCO dataset derived from ESRI/GDT data.
