Summary for Field Activity Number 1987-015-FA

Alternate Leg ID: FRNL 87-4; Leg 4

Area of Operations: Hatteras Canyon, North Carolina continental slope and rise, United States EEZ, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: April 27, 1987 to May 08, 1987

Objectives: GLORIA (long-range sidescan sonar) mapping of East Coast U.S. mid-Atlantic region via contract with IOS (Institute of Oceanographic Sciences, U.K.). This was a gap-filling period to adjust for time lost and survey area not covered because of bad weather during Legs 1 and 2 of the effort to map the East Coast U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

Type of Activity: Seismic profiling
Sea floor mapping

Information to be derived: Sea Floor Map
Morphology

Summary: GLORIA sidescan sonar; Airgun: 3240 km; 3.5 kHz: 3240 km; 10 kHz soundings: 19 xbt profiles; Magnetics: 3240 km.

USGS Project Number: GLORIA
