Abstract:
These data were collected under a cooperative agreement between the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Coastal and Marine Geology Program, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center (WHCMSC). Initiated in 2003, the primary objective of this program is to develop regional geologic framework information for the management of coastal and marine resources. Accurate data and maps of seafloor geology are important first steps toward protecting fish habitat, delineating marine resources, and assessing environmental changes due to natural or human impacts. The project is focused on the inshore waters of coastal Massachusetts, primarily in water depths of 2-30 meters. Data collected for the mapping cooperative have been released in a series of USGS Open-File Reports (https://woodshole.er.usgs.gov/project-pages/coastal_mass/). The data collected in this study area are located in both Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound and are primarily in the shallow water areas around the eastern Elizabeth Islands and Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts. The data include high resolution bathymetry, acoustic-backscatter intensity, sound velocity in water, seismic-reflection profiles, and navigation data. These data were collected during several cruises between 2007 and 2011 onboard the R/V Rafael using the following equipment: an SEA Ltd SwathPlus interferometric sonar (234 kHz), Klein 3000 dual frequency sidescan sonar, a boomer source and Geometrics 8-channel GeoEel streamer, a Knudsen 3200 subbottom profiling system, and 4 GPS antennae. More information about the cruises conducted as part of the project: Geologic Mapping of the Seafloor Offshore of Massachusetts can be found on the Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center Field Activity webpages: https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=2011-013-FA, https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=2009-068-FA, https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=2007-039-FA, https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=2010-100-FA, and https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=2010-047-FA.
Purpose:
PNG images of each seismic profile were generated in order to incorporate images of the seismic data into Geographic Information System (GIS) projects and data archives. These PNG images represent approximately 21 km of multichannel boomer seismic data collected with a GeoAcoustics boomer source and Geometrics 8-channel GeoEel streamer on January 6, 2011. This format is universal and yields an easily browseable pictorial view of the seismic profiles. Each profile image is hotlinked to its corresponding trackline navigation contained within a polyline shapefile, and even 500 trace locations are available in a point shapefile. All of these data are available in a Esri ArcMap project, as well as separate .zip archives.

Logical_Consistency_Report:
Processed seismic data were converted to portable network graphic (PNG) format for ease of seismic trace display. Quality control was conducted during processing. Only 3 lines were collected during this survey. The line naming convention is Lx, where x is the line number from 1 to 3.
Completeness_Report:
All boomer lines collected for 2010-100-FA are included in this report

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The navigation for these data were acquired with an Communications Systems International (CSI), Inc. LGBX Pro Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) receiver and an antenna mounted on the cabin of the R/V Rafael. All DGPS data are referenced to WGS84. The Geometrics CNT-1 acquisition software logged the navigation coordinates (in arc seconds) to individual trace headers. Layback distance between the CSI antenna and the source and receiver were calculated in post processing. The resulting horizontal accuracy is assumed to be +/- 2 m; however, inaccuracies likely exceed this value due to uncertainty of azimuths calculated in the layback correction.

Approximately 21 km of high-resolution multichannel boomer seismic-reflection profiles were collected. The Applied Acoustics boomer source was towed on the starboard side of the RV Rafael, 10 meters aft of the GPS antenna, and was fired at a power level of 100 joules at 1-second intervals with trace lengths of 250 milliseconds. The Geometrics GeoEel, eight-channel liquid filled digital streamer was towed from the port side of the vessel, and the center of the first channel of the active section was 22 meters aft of the boomer source. The streamer had a group interval of 3.125 meters connected to Geometrics Streamer Power Supply Unit (SPSU). Data acquired in Geometrics SEG-D format on Windows PC controller system using Geometrics CNT-1 software. The sample interval was 0.25 ms.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
A SIOSEIS seismic processing software script was used as follows: The raw SEG-D shot files were read with the process SEGDDIN specifying geometrics format; for lines L1 and L2, the process HEADER was used to correct time of day because of random incorrect values of time and position recorded in the header (correct time in the header was needed for the next process); the process GEOM was used to describe the shot and streamer geometries and to calculate the reflection point (CDP) numbers used to gather (sort traces by CDP) the seismic line. Process GEOM was used to set the shot-receiver distance into the trace header of every trace. For lines L1 and L2, GEOM type 6 was specified, which computes a distance from last shot (DFLS) for each shot based on the corrected shot time in the header and the navigation from an ASCII file containing time and position. The ASCII shot navigation file was derived from the HYPACK navigation data. Geom type 9 was specified for line L3, which calculates DFLS based on position in the SEG-D header that was verified to be correct; a normal move out (NMO) applied a travel time correction to each trace based on offset and a velocity of 1500 m/s; process GATHER was used to sort the shot order traces in to traces sorted by the CDP numbers computed by the process GEOM; lastly, the CDP trace gathers were written with the process in SEG-Y rev. 1, IEEE floating point format.

Process_Description:
A SIOSEIS script was used to stack the CDP gathers, apply a bandpass filter and automatic gain control. The process DISKIN read the CDP sorted SEG-Y file and renumbered CDP starting at one and incremented CDP number by one. The process STACK was used to sum traces, compute the average amplitude for each trace sample, and write the computed samples to one trace. The trace header values of the first trace in the gather were used for the stacked trace. The process FILTER applied a zero-phase bandpass frequency domain filter between 600 and 2000 Hz with a slope of 48 decibel per octave slope. The process AGC applied an automatic gain control (AGC) with a window length of 5 ms. The computed multiplier for each AGC window was reduced by fifty percent. Lastly, the processed stacked traces were written to disk with the process DISKOX in SEG-Y rev. 1 , IEEE floating point format.

A Seismic Unix (version 4.0) script was used to read the stacked, filtered and gained SEG-Y files and plot the data as 8-bit gray scale Postscript files using the Seismic Unix 'psimage' algorithm. All images were created with a horizontal scale of 60 traces per inch. Images were plotted within a constant 18-inch vertical window of 180 milliseconds (Two-Way Travel Time) duration. The Postscript images were then converted with ImageMagick (version 6.8.7-2) to PNG format at 200 dpi.

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.). Fixed link to data zip file in Identification section. Added the DOI link in the Identification section - both as the first link and as part of the Larger Work citation. Fixed the publication date and also the Larger Work citation title to match what is available online. Updated the link to the project page in the abstract as well as the field activity links. The source information was incomplete and had to be modified to meet the standard. Fixed a link in the distribution 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.
