Alternate Leg ID: ATL2 89-2; 89, Leg 2
Area of Operations: Atlantic outer continental shelf, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: April 30, 1975 to May 16, 1975
Objectives: Conduct a geology and geophysics cruise along the Atlantic continental margin between Virginia and Cape Cod, concentrating on the continental shelf and slope between Virginia and Long Island where high-resolution seismic reflection profiling, vibracoring and bottom samples are needed for Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and USGS environmental impact studies in areas where petroleum lease sales are being considered. Single-channel seismic reflection profiles (airgun), gravity, and magnetics (Legs 1-3) programs for regional geologic resource assessment studies will also be conducted.
Type of Activity:
Information to be derived:
Summary: Collected high-resolution seismic profiles (Uniboom) and airgun profiles on the shelf and slope between Virginia and Long Island.
