Archive of Digital Chirp Seismic Reflection Data Collected During USGS Cruise 05SCC01 Offshore of Port Fourchon and Timbalier Bay, Louisiana, August 2005
Entry ID: USGS_DS_2007_242


Summary
Abstract: In August of 2005, the U.S. Geological Survey conducted geophysical surveys
offshore of Port Fourchon and Timbalier Bay, Louisiana, and in nearby
waterbodies. This report serves as an archive of unprocessed digital chirp
seismic reflection data, trackline maps, navigation files, GIS information,
Field Activity Collection System (FACS) logs, observer's logbook, and formal
FGDC metadata. Filtered and gained digital images of the seismic profiles are
also provided.

The archived trace data are in standard Society of Exploration Geophysicists
(SEG) SEG-Y format (Barry and others, 1975) and may be downloaded and processed
with commercial or public domain software such as Seismic Unix (SU). Example SU
processing scripts and USGS software for viewing the SEG-Y files (Zihlman,
1992) are also provided.
