Alternate Leg ID: NE-82-1
Area of Operations: Albemarle Sound, North Carolina, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: April 15, 1982 to April 29, 1982
Objectives: The cruise was conducted for the Reactor Hazards Research Program to gain knowledge on structural elements of the southeastern margin. The cruise was also aimed at gathering stratigraphic information in the Cape Hatteras area. A secondary objective of conducting shallow seismic and sidescan sonar surveys within Albemerle Sound as a sedimentation study was aborted when sparker data was found to interfere (cross talk) with the deeper airgun records.
Type of Activity:
Information to be derived:
Summary: Surveying did not begin before April 19th due to equipment set-up and repair issues. I consider the cruise quite successful, due in large part to the efforts of the personnel who tirelessly gave their best efforts. 12-channel data: 208 km.
USGS Project Number: 51821
