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 the combined single-beam and multibeam echo-sounder data and sidescan-sonar data collected in the vicinity of Edgartown Harbor, Massachusetts. During August 2008 seismic-reflection profiles (Boomer and Chirp) were acquired, and during September 2008 bottom photographs and surficial sediment data were acquired as part of two ground-truth reconnaissance surveys.
Purpose:
To release the Boomer seismic profiles collected to ground-truth acoustic data (combined single-beam and multibeam bathymetry and sidescan-sonar imagery) collected during NOAA hydrographic survey H11346. The Boomer data were collected to interpret the deeper stratigraphy beneath Edgartown Harbor.

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report: Navigation was by DGPS; positional accuracy to less than 10 m. The Boomer source was towed astern and to the port side of the RV Rafael on the water surface. The single-channel hydrophone streamer was towed astern and to the starboard side and approximately 0.5 meters below the water surface. The layback offset was accounted for in the positional data recorded in the SEG-Y headers. The layback position was 8 meters aft of the vessel.

Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The vertical position was local sea level and there have been no corrections to a datum or for tidal variations.

Process_Description:
High-resolution Boomer seismic-reflection data were collected August 20 aboard the Research Vessel Rafael. The seismic data were acquired digitally along 5 lines totaling approximately 27.6 km with a GeoAcoustics Boomer source, GeoAcoustics power supply, Benthos AQ4 single-channel streamer, and Chesapeake Systems SonarWiz v4.03.0089 acquisition software. The Boomer was fired at a rate of 0.5 seconds at a power output of 175 joules. The received signal was filtered between 100-3000 Hz with a Geopulse receiver. The trace data recorded for 266 ms with a sample rate of 0.533 ms in standard SEG-Y format.

A Unix shell script was run that used Seismic Unix v4.0 to read the SEG-Y files and plot the data as 8-bit gray scale Postscript files using the Seismic Unix 'psimage' algorithm at a scale of 4.16 ms per inch and 100 traces per inch. The Postscript images were then converted to JPEG format with Imagemagick 5.5.6

Process_Description:
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. Added an online linke for a cross-reference and fixed the online link for another cross-reference. The source information only contained a date, so was deleted. The geographic coordinate units were listed as seconds of arc, which violates the standard. The value was changed to decimal degrees. The assumption is that seconds of arc refers to information in the SEG-Y header. Added a digital form so that the JPEG and SEG-Y each had a section. 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.

Overview_Description:
Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
This data set includes boomer seismic-reflection data in SEG-Y and JPEG formats collected along 5 lines in the vicinity of Edgartown, offshore Massachusetts. The seismic data were collected during USGS survey 08034, conducted August 18-20, 2008. Each profile is available as a binary file in Society of Exploration Geophysicists SEG-Y rev 1 format. A SEG-Y file consists of 1) a 3200-byte file identification record of EBCDIC encoded general information; 2) a 400-byte binary record with information such as sample rate and record length specific to the data set; and 3) multiple records, one seismic reflection trace per record. Each trace record is preceded by a 240-byte "trace header" containing information such as trace number and acquisition day and time specific to each trace. The trace data are represented as a time series of unitless 32-bit IEEE real numbers proportional to the reflection coefficient. The SEG-Y file is useful only if you have access to specialized software designed to process and display seismic reflection data. **In the original metadata, the Geographic_Coordinate_Units were listed as seconds of arc, which violates the standard. The assumption is that seconds of arc refers to information in the SEG-Y header.
