Field Activity 1990-300-FA

Identifier 1990-300-FA
Alternate names Erda 90-1_HC, Erda 90-1_PBP, Erda 91-3
Purpose To collect geophysical and sedimentological data in the northern Gulf of Mexico, including shallow subsurface data in the form of high-resolution seismic-reflection profiles (HRSP).
Location Mississippi Sound
Summary Collected approximately 443.09 line-kilometers of analog seismic data.
Info derived Sub-bottom profile images
Comments The Erda 90-1 geophysical cruise was conducted in two legs. The first leg included seismic data collected from the Hancock County region of the Mississippi Sound (Erda 90-1_HC) from June 4 to June 6, 1990. The second leg included seismic data collected from the Petit Bois Pass area of Mississippi Sound (Erda 90-1_PBP) from June 8 to June 9, 1990. The Erda 91-3 cruise occurred between September 12 and September 23, 1991, and surveyed the Mississippi Sound region just west of Horn Island, Mississippi.
