Title:
Seismic Trackline Navigation: USF navigation of seismic data collected in the Pulley Ridge area in 1996 and 2001
Abstract:
These seismic data were collected to infer the paleodepositional environment of Pulley Ridge through seismic facies analysis. Without actual rock cores, remote sensing is the next best tool. It was uncertain if Pulley Ridge represented a drowned reef or paleoshoreline. Through seismic imaging, it was determined from the high-amplitude, level-bedded nature of material in the sub-surface that Pulley Ridge represents several stages of barrier-island development.

    Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
    Lines 47 and 48 were collected in 1996, the remainder of the seismic lines (23-32 and 34) were collected in 2001. The 1996 seismic data were collected with ORE boomer sled, Geopulse power supply (375 joules), ITI streamer, Elics acquisition and processing software, and DGPS. The 2001 seismic data were collected with Huntec boomer sled, Applied Acoustics power supply (375 joules), ITI streamer, Elics acquisition and processing software, and DGPS.

Why was the data set created?

This GIS layer is provided to enable a correlation between seismic-reflection profile images and their geographic location based on shotpoints.

How was the data set created?

  1. From what previous works were the data drawn?
  2. How were the data generated, processed, and modified?
    Date: unknown (process 1 of 9)
    Navigation was acquired from USF (University of South Florida) in a format suitable for import into an Excel spreadsheet with shotpoint navigation for each seismic line in a separate file.
    Date: unknown (process 2 of 9)
    The individual navigation files were export from excel in to a comma delimited format. Person who carried out this activity:

    (508) 457-2310 (FAX)
    vatnipp@usgs.gov
    Date: unknown (process 3 of 9)
    These individual navigation files were then concatenated together into one file and imported to ArcView as an ESRI ungenerate format and converted to a shapefile. Person who carried out this activity:

    (508) 457-2310 (FAX)
    vatnipp@usgs.gov
    Date: unknown (process 4 of 9)
    The "hotlink" attribute field was added so that the tracklines could be linked to the JPEG images of the seismic-reflection profiles.
    Date: 29-Mar-2017 (process 5 of 9)
    Edits to the metadata were made to fix any errors that MP v 2.9.36 flagged. This is necessary to enable the metadata to be successfully harvested for various data catalogs. In some cases, this meant adding text "Information unavailable" or "Information unavailable from original metadata" for those required fields that were left blank. Other minor edits were probably performed (title, publisher, publication place, etc.). Attempted to modify http to https where appropriate. The link to the larger work citation had to be fixed. The standard order process section in the Distribution section was incomplete and had to be modified to meet the standard - which included adding a link to the data. Added ISO 19115 Topic Category keywords. The metadata date (but not the metadata creator) was edited to reflect the date of these changes. The metadata available from a harvester may supersede metadata bundled within a download file. Compare the metadata dates to determine which metadata file is most recent.
