Summary for Field Activity Number 1985-035-FA

Alternate Leg ID: 85-G-11

Area of Operations: Gulf of Maine, United States, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: October 06, 1985 to November 04, 1985

Objectives: Primary objectives were to acquire: 1) shallow to intermediate depth penetration seismic reflection data with USGS seismic reflection system; 2) intermediate to deep depth penetration wide-angle seismic reflection and refraction data with the USGS Ocean Bottom Seismometer (OBS) system; and 3) high-quality gravity and navigation data.

Type of Activity: Refraction profiling, OBSes

Information to be derived: Morphology

Summary: Seismic reflection/refraction, gravity, magnetic, and navigation data acquired. Multichannel seismic reflection (MCS)11 lines, totaling 1305 km; OBSes: 8 lines, 28 deployments; Gravity-box surveys for navigation-gravity calibration: 2.

USGS Project Number: ACM-MAG
