Seismic profile line locations, Chatham Strait and Cross Sound, Alaska

Location map shows lines where seismic reflection data was collected.

Detailed Description

High-resolution multichannel minisparker and chirp seismic-reflection data were collected in August of 2015 to explore marine geologic hazards of inland waterways of southeastern Alaska. Sub-bottom profiles were acquired in the inland waters between Glacier Bay and Juneau, including Cross Sound and Chatham Strait. High-resolution seismic-reflection profiles were acquired to assess evidence for active seabed faulting and submarine landslide hazards. The data were collected aboard the U.S. Geological Survey R/V Alaskan Gyre. Chirp data were acquired using a tow-fish Edgetech 512 chirp subbottom profiler, and multichannel (mcs) minisparker data were acquired using a 500-Joule minisparker source and a 48-channel Geometrics GeoEel digital streamer. Subbottom acoustic penetration spans up to several tens of meters, and is variable by location. This data release contains processed digital digital data in SEG-Y format.
