We thank Keith Ludwig, captain of the R/V G. K. Gilbert for his help in the data collection; Dave Foster and Jenna Hill, of the USGS Seafloor Mapping Group in Woods Hole, Mass., for providing examples of their archives; Jon Childs with the USGS in Menlo Park, Calif., who provided examples of his formal metadata; and Trent Faust and Rob Wertz with the USGS here in St.Petersburg, Fla., for their help in the web design and technical layout of the CD-ROM.
Marine seismic reflection data are used to image and map sedimentary and structural features of the seafloor and subsurface. The main objective of this cruise was to ascertain if data useful to the Everglades Aquifer Storage and Recovery Project could be acquired using seismic techniques. These data proved to be useful in mapping the extent and thickness of shallow sedimentary units beneath Lake Okeechobee, Fla., and in assessing other submarine geologic characteristics and features.
Are there legal restrictions on access or use of the data?
Access_Constraints: None. These data are held in the public domain.
Use_Constraints:The U.S. Geological Survey requests to be acknowledged as the originator of the data in future products or derivative research.

|Data format:||The SEG-Y standard format (Barry and others, 1975) consists of the following: A 3600-byte reel identification header with the first 3200 bytes consisting of an EBCDIC header block and a 400-byte binary header block. Both headers include information specific to line and reel number. The trace data block follows the reel identification header. The first 240 bytes of each trace block is the binary trace identification header. The seismic data samples follow the trace identification header. Our data uses an ASCII header block instead of the standard EBCDIC. in format SEG-Y Size: 650|
