Field Activity 00SCC02

Identifier 00SCC02
Alternate names G-1-00-LA
Purpose Characterization of the Geological Framework, Mapping sediment distribution, and locating offshore sand resources.
Location Barataria Basin, Northern Gulf of Mexico - Louisiana
Summary Collected 50 single-channel boomer seismic lines. Characterized the geological framework.
Info derived Geophysical data is being used to determine sediment distribution and thickness, and to locate sand deposits to be used in Louisiana beach renourishment projects.
Comments These FACS logs were generated by Gina M. Peery in August of 2001, using the handwritten logbooks and personal accounts of the scientist and crew members.

EDITED SHOTPOINT NAVIGATION(22696)
Description Shotpoint navigation files were extracted from the SEG-Y seismic trace headers and edited to remove spurious data values (large navigation jumps or an incomplete record) and fix incorrectly recorded dates

Comments 00SCC02 (Chirp) Lines with shifts were split and gained by AF. Nav for these lines was split and partially edited by AF. The editing was completed by KC. Reprocessed with procnav, which was first divided to match the new split segy files. Data is not available for the very beginning of line 35_a, so its nav was edited to match the shorter line length.
