Dates: October 09, 2012 to October 16, 2012
Chief scientist: Daniel Brothers
Objectives: Siesmic profiling across the Currituck submarine slide. Follow-up cruise from July cruise that was cut short due to equipment failure.
Type of Activity: Seismic profiling;
Information to be derived: Morphology;Quaternary Geology/slope stability
Summary: 72-ch high resolution sparker MCS collected aboard the M/V Tiki along the Currituck submarine landslide. Over 800 line-km were collected. Depth control birds on the seismic streamer failed and we had to use lead weights. Some statics corrections will be necessary during processing.
