Area of Operations: Gulf of Maine, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: October 06, 1985 to November 04, 1985
Chief scientist: Kim Klitgord
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;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.
