Summary
Abstract: This report consists of high-resolution chirp seismic reflection profiledata
from the northern Gulf of Lions, Spain. These data were acquired in2004 using
the Research Vessel Oceanus (USGS Cruise ID: O-1-04-MS). Thedata are available
in binary and JPEG image formats. Binary data arein Society of Exploration
Geologists (SEG) SEG-Y format and may bedownloaded for further processing or

SHIPS Ancillary Description
Quality The validity or accuracy of marine seismic reflection profiles ishighly
qualitative, and depends on equipment and operating conditionvariables too
numerous to quantify. There have been no efforts toassess the validity of the
data.

These are sparse line coverages (2D).Therefore, data are inherently incomplete.
Geologic details betweenlines must be inferred. The surveys were not designed
to cover aparticular geographic area; the line spacings and azimuths were
chosento assess the regional stratigraphy.
Access Constraints None. These data are held in the public domain.
Use Constraints The U.S. Geological Survey requests to be acknowledged as the originatorof the
data in future products or derivative research.
