dc.descriptionThis report describes a large-offset seismic experiment in the Green Canyon area of the northern Gulf of Mexico, offshore of Louisiana, using large-capacity air guns and ocean-bottom seismographs. The purpose of the experiment was to map the deep sedimentary and crustal structures underlying the thick sedimentary cover which also included many salt intrusives. Five lines, each approximately 100 km long with four OBS's, were shot over an area which extended from mid-shelf at about 50 m water depth to just beyond the Sigsbee Escarpment at about 2500 m water depth.en_US
