Seismic instrument on pontoon floats towed from USGS vessel

Seismic instrument on pontoon floats towed behind a vessel with marsh in the background.

Detailed Description

Most underwater seismic data is collected from large research vessels, but the shoreface environment is shallower than areas in which most seismic surveys occur. To get the information we need to assess changes in shoreface morphology, we mount our seismic instrument on pontoon floats towed behind our survey vessel.
