Gulf of Mexico Seismic Refraction Study, Alaminos Canyon OBS Experiment (Final Technical Report)
MetadataShow full item record
The University of Texas Institute for Geophysics has conducted a study to examine the deep sedimentary and basement structure in the Alaminos Canyon area of the northern Gulf of Mexico using large-capacity air guns and ocean-bottom seismographs. We carried out a field experiment (Phase I) in early 1985, and have completed both the standard data reduction and analysis (Phase II) and more detailed advanced analysis of the acquired data set (Phase ill). This final report describes the field experiment and covers all the results including interpreted structural cross-sections along Lines A and B and description of the characteristics and interpretation of several converted shear waves observed using three-component instruments.
