Summary for Field Activity Number 1987-004-FA

Alternate Leg ID: 87-1, Leg 1; F1-87-EC

Area of Operations: Northern Blake Plateau, Blake Outer Ridge, Cape Hatteras, outer continental slope and rise, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, United States EEZ, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: February 02, 1987 to February 27, 1987

Objectives: This cruise was the first leg of the joint USGS/IOS GLORIA Survey of the East Coast Atlantic Margin Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). The cruise covered a portion of the EEZ that included the northern Blake Plateau and the continental slope and rise off Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina, from the 400 isobath to the 200 mile EEZ boundary. The British Institute of Oceanographic Sciences' (IOS) long-range sidescan sonar system (GLORIA) was contracted by the USGS to produce a reconnaissance-type map of the sea floor within the U.S. EEZ of the conterminous United States, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The survey is being done to provide a basic understanding of the EEZ, including resource potential and geologic hazards.

Type of Activity: Sea floor mapping

Information to be derived: Sea Floor Map
Morphology

Summary: GLORIA sidescan sonar: 6371 km (3440 nautical miles); Airgun: 6371 km (3440 nm); 3.5 kHz: 7408 km (4000 nm); 10 kHz: 6482 km (3500 nm); Magnetics: 5556 km (3000 nm).
