A Digital Data Release
Northeastern Long Island
Fishers Island Sound: AST90-1 Navigation Discussion
The images that appear below are trackline maps showing the locations of lines of seismic data collected on leg 1 of the 1990 RV ASTERIAS cruise to Fishers Island Sound and northeastern Long Island Sound. This data set includes 28 lines collected in Fishers Island Sound, and another set of 5 lines, each composed of two traverses, that were collected as part of a survey over a subaqueous fan deposit.
The navigation files, which are located in the data/nav/90_1nav directory at the top level of this DVD, are provided in two formats:
These files are a compilation of all the navigation collected on the cruise and have the following data fields: cruise id, date, time (EDST), seismic line, and latitude and longitude in decimal degrees. To download the navigation data from the DVD the user has a couple of options. One option is available while viewing any of the data files through the links above. The user may select the Save As option from the pulldown menu from the File option located on the menu bar. When prompted, the user may then enter the directory and filename of where the data file will be stored on disk. A second option is to access the DVD outside of a WWW browser and copy the file from the data/nav directory on the DVD to a desired location.
