Marine Geoscience Data System
90L566 Seismic Reflection/Refraction
Single-channel seismic field data in the Gulf of Mexico, acquired by the R/V Longhorn in 1990 (90L566)
Funded by the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics Student Cruise Fund; 90L566 (UTIG Student Cruise 13 in the Gulf of Mexico) was one of many student cruises conducted by UTIG as a means of introducing students to the collection of marine geophysical data. 90L566 collected 3-channel seismic data. The priorities of data acquisition were: seismic reflection profiles of the salt and associated stratigraphy of prospective heat flow sites, surficial sediment character of these sites (as determined by 3.5 kHz profiles, piston, and box cores, micropaleontologic and geochemical sampling of box cores, and shallow plankton tows with supporting water samples and CTD casts).
