EW0001 Seismic Reflection/Refraction
Seismic:Reflection:MCS
Processed multichannel seismic data in the Canterbury Basin, New Zealand, acquired during R/V Maurice Ewing expedition EW0001 (2000)
This project collected high resolution seismic data in support of a funded NSF proposal: Global and Local Controls on Depositional Cyclicity: the Canterbury Basin, New Zealand. Seismic, multibeam, magnetics and gravity data were acquired concurrently. This marine seismic reflection survey was designed to image high-frequency sedimentary sequences and sediment drifts with the goal of examining the interplay of global (eustacy) and local (tectonics, sediment supply rate and ocean currents) controls responsible for continental margin sedimentation and cyclicity. The data were used to develop an IODP proposal, eventually drilled as IODP Expedition 317 in 2009-2010. Funding was provided by NSF grant OCE-9731031.
