Summary Information for Field Activity 1994-007-FA

Area of Operations: Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts Bay, Stellwagen Bank, Tillies Bank, Tillies Basin, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: October 18, 1994 to October 22, 1994

Chief scientist: Bob Oldale
Rick Rendigs

Objectives: Collection of seismic reflection data for determining the geologic framework of Stellwagen Bank, Tillies Bank and Tillies Basin.

Type of Activity:

Information to be derived:

Summary: The cruise was very successful in accomplishing all the original "landslide" expectations for total trackline coverage. Data quality was excellent and overall resolution of the reflectors was enhanced by displaying the data on two channels of the EPC recorder at different sweep rates. Interpretation of the acoustic basement reflectors should be possible from this data set resulting in a more complete understanding of the geologic framework of Stellwagen Bank. Transect lines: 32.
