JN0406 Seismic:Active:Subbottom
CHIRP Data from the eastern Mississippi Sound, Alabama, acquired during R/V Jenny survey JN0406 (2004)
Party of a study to explore incised valley fill from three Gulf of Mexico bays, specifically Mobile Bay, Galveston Bay, and Corpus Christi Bay, this R/V Jenny survey collected high-resolution CHIRP data in eastern Mississippi Sound, Alabama during the summer of 2004. Two companion cruises, JN0206 and JN0306, collected CHIRP data in eastern Mississippi Sound in the summers of 2002 and 2003. The goal was to use the data to identify flooding surfaces and help quantify coastal response to forcing mechanisms. This will help test the hypothesis that variations in the rate of coastal subsidence and river discharge were not the cause of the observed coastal backstepping events. Funded by NSF grant EAR-0107650, the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund grant ACS-PRF 36694-G8, the Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies, and the Hooks Research Fund.
