Alternate Leg ID: CI 7-78-3
Area of Operations: northern Blake Plateau, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: September 29, 1978 to October 19, 1978
Objectives: Assess types and frequencies of environmental hazards that may be encountered on the northern Blake Plateau; study the shallow geologic section to define these geologic hazards using high-resolution geophysical profiling gear on a 28-km grid; and test the shipboard gravity system to obtain gravity coverage of the northern Blake Plateau.
Type of Activity: Seismic profiling
Information to be derived: Morphology
