Description:
Abstract:
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (MA CZM), is producing detailed geologic maps of the coastal sea floor. Imagery, originally collected by NOAA for charting purposes, provides a fundamental framework for research and management activities along this part of the Massachusetts coastline, shows the composition and terrain of the seabed, and provides information on sediment transport and benthic habitat. Interpretive data layers were derived from multibeam echo-sounder and sidescan-sonar data collected in the vicinity of Woods Hole, a passage through the Elizabeth Islands, off Cape Cod, Massachusetts. In November 2007, bottom photographs, high-resolution seismic-reflection data, and Surficial sediment data were acquired as part of a ground-truth reconnaissance survey.
Purpose:
This data set includes the lines for seismic-reflection data collected along 11 lines in the vicinity of Woods Hole, offshore Massachusetts. The seismic data were collected during USGS survey 07034, conducted November 14-19, 2007. This data set was acquired to ground-truth acoustic data collected during NOAA hydrographic survey H11077.

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report: Navigation was by GPS; positional accuracy to less than 30 m. The Chirp 512i was towed astern of the RV Rafael on the water surface. A Garmin GPS receiver was mounted on the center of the tow vehicle. GPS data were transmitted to the RV Rafael and input to data acquisition system.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
High-resolution seismic-reflection data were collected during November 2007 aboard the Research Vessel Rafael. The seismic data were acquired digitally along 11 lines totaling approximately 12.6 km with an Edgetech SB-512i Chirp sub-bottom profiler (500 Hz - 12 kHz swept FM) at a 0.25-s fire rate, a 50-ms pulse length, and a 0.5 to 4.5 kHz sweep (swept frequency). These data were logged in the Edgetech raw format (JSF) using Edgetech Jstar acquisition software.

Process_Description:
The Edgetech format (JSF) Chirp 512i data were converted to standard SEG-Y rev1 format files using a C program written by Tom O'Brien (USGS, Woods Hole, MA). The parameters were set to extract and write the envelope trace data only.

Process_Description:
A script was run that used Seismic Unix to read the SEG-Y files, write a Seismic Unix file, and extract SEG-Y trace header information, which included shot number, longitude, latitude, year, day, and time of day. Geographic coordinates converted to UTM zone 19 coordinates using Proj. Before saving all of these attributes in a text file, the data were filtered using AWK to save only unique shot point locations.In addition, separate text files with even shot intervals of 100 and 500 were saved.

Process_Description:
Edits to the metadata were made to fix any errors that MP v 2.9.32 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.). Moved information from the horizontal quantitative accuracy section to the horizontal accuracy report. 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.
