Ralph Lewis the chief scientist aboard the cruise; Mary DiGiacomo-Cohen and Valerie Paskevich for completing the Arc processing and creation of the GIS data layer.
The purpose is to disseminate a digital version of a regional map showing the distribution of sub-bottom seismic profiles (boomer) collected in western Long Island Sound aboard the R/V ASTERIAS during 1985. The seismic data collected along these ship tracks can be used to provide useful information about the framework geology in this region.
