   Alan Green - CSC, U W, SIU, NIU, UWO, Usask

Objectives: Multichannel seismic data over the Great Lakes were acquired by Geophoto Services, Ltd., a Canadian subsidiary of Geophysical Service, Inc., for the U.S. Geological Survey and Geological Survey of Canada as part of the Great Lakes International Multidisciplinary Program of Crustal Evolution (GLIMPCE) to better understand the deep structure and tectonics of the midcontinent rift system and the Grenville tectonic province.

Type of Activity: Seismic reflection and seismic refraction;Seismic reflection and seismic refraction

Information to be derived: Morphology;

Summary: 9 CDP multichannel lines: 1370 km (Lake Superior - A, B, B-F link, C, F, and G; Lake Michigan - H; and Lake Huron - I and J).
