Summary for Field Activity Number 1987-008-FA

Alternate Leg ID: FRNL 87-2; Leg 2

Area of Operations: Cape Hatteras, Hudson Canyon, continental slope and rise, North Carolina, Virginia, New Jersey, United States EEZ, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: Mar 01, 1987 to Mar 26, 1987

Objectives: GLORIA (long-range sidescan sonar) mapping of East Coast U.S. mid-Atlantic region via contract with IOS (Institute of Oceanographic Sciences, United Kingdom). This was Leg 2 of a 5-leg effort to map the East Coast U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Part of the cruise time was spent recovering area designated for Leg 1 but not surveyed due to weather. In turn, some of the Leg 2 area was not covered. Unsurveyed parts will probably be covered during Leg 4.

Type of Activity: Seismic profiling
Sea floor mapping

Information to be derived: Sea Floor Map
Morphology

Summary: GLORIA sidescan sonar: 6100 km; Airgun: 6100 km; 3.5 kHz: 6100 km; 10 kHz: 6100 km; XBT: 20 (47 tries); Magnetics: 6100 km.
