Detailed Description

University of Washington's research vessel R/V Barnes is loaded with the USGS multichannel seismic system components GeoEel, Chirp, and boom plates. During the fieldwork, we collected multichannel sparker and towed chirp sub-bottom data in Puget Sound and multichannel boomer and towed chirp sub-bottom data in Lake Washington, in hopes of characterizing recent deformation and estimating earthquake recurrence on the Seattle Fault zone.
