Description:
Abstract:
The complete original data files and navigation files are available in the appropriate directories as well as log files that were scanned and stored as imagery(gif etc). The seismic raw data is in SEGY format. SEGY is a standard digital format that can be read and manipulated by most seismic-processing software packages. The navigation files are in the original format in ASCII and can be used to plot track maps of the seismic profiles at any scale or map projection desired. The navigation files are organized by year and the beginning of each seismic line is marked by a comment such as "## Start of line 1". Each line ends where the next consecutive line begins, unless denoted by a comment such as "##End of line 1". All data is being processed from 9-track tape to cd-rom.
Purpose:
Digital Seismic data have been used to define and map sedimentary environments in Lake Baikal and to choose the best coring sites for paleoclimatic analysis, including the 1993 site for the Baikal Drilling Project. All digital data collected on 9-track tape for this project is being transcribed to cd-rom and all paper records are being scanned and archived.
