Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): David Foster, William Schwab
Information Specialist(s): David Foster
Data Type(s): Seismics: Boomer, Seismics: Multichannel, Location-Elevation: Navigation
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Supplement existing Chirp subbottom profiles in Buzzards Bay and Vineyard Sound with deeper penetration Boomer profiling system. These data will contribute to a more complete geologic framework for the Mass CZM mapping program.
Start Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
End Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
Start Date: 2011-01-06
End Date: 2011-01-06
Equipment Used: Boomer, Multichannel seismics, DGPS
Information to be Derived: Morphology;Seismic stratigraphy
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: 20.8 km of 8-channel boomer seismic reflection data were collected in Vineyard Sound. Objectives for Buzzards bay were not met due to winter weather conditions.
