Abstract:
From February through July of 1997, the U.S. Geological Survey conducted geophysical surveys of Lakes Dosson, Halfmoon and Round, Sebastian Inlet, and Indian River Lagoon, within west-central and offshore of the eastern Florida coast. Field activity 97LCA01 was conducted in cooperation with the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD), and field activities 97LCA02 and 97LCA03 were conducted in cooperation with the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD). This report serves as an archive of unprocessed digital boomer sub-bottom data, trackline maps, navigation files, GIS information, cruise log, and formal FGDC metadata. Filtered and gained digital images of the seismic profiles are also provided. The archived trace data are in standard Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) SEG-Y format (Barry and others, 1975) and may be downloaded and processed with commercial or public domain software such as Seismic Unix (SU). Example SU processing scripts and USGS software for viewing the SEG-Y files (Zihlman, 1992) are also provided. 

For detailed information about the hydrologic setting of Lakes Dosson, Halfmoon and Round and the interpretation of some of these sub-bottom data, see Metz and Sacks (2002) at http://fl.water.usgs.gov/PDF_files/wri02_4032_metz.pdf.
Purpose:
The data archived here were collected as part of the USGS Lakes and Coastal Aquifers (LCA) study.
Supplemental_Information:
The USGS Saint Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC) - St. Petersburg, FL, assigns a unique identifier to each cruise or field activity. For example, 97LCA01 tells us the data were collected in 1997 for the Lakes and Coastal Aquifers (LCA) project and the data were collected during the first field activity for that project in that calendar year. Refer to http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/programs/html/definition/activity.html for a detailed description of the method used to assign the cruise ID. The naming convention used for each seismic line is as follows: xx#a, where xx is an abbreviation of the survey area the data were collected in, # is a number representing a specific track, and a is a letter representing the section of a line if recording was prematurely terminated or rerun for quality or acquisition problems. 

The boomer sub-bottom processing system consists of an acoustic energy source that is made up of capacitors charged to a high voltage and discharged through a transducer in the water. The transducer is towed on a sled floating on the water surface and when discharged emits a short acoustic pulse, or shot, that propagates through the water and sediment column. The acoustic energy is reflected at density boundaries (such as the seafloor or sediment layers beneath the lake bottom), detected by the receiver (hydrophone streamer), and recorded by a PC-based seismic acquisition system. This process is repeated at timed intervals (for example, 0.5 s) and recorded for specific intervals of time (for example, 100 ms). In this way, a 2-D vertical image of the shallow geologic structure beneath the ship track is produced. 

An ORE GeoPulse power supply provided 105 Joules of energy per shot for field activity 97LCA01 and varied between 280/455 Joules for 97LCA03; 97LCA02 used a Huntec ESU-PSU power supply, which provided 480 Joules per shot. Reflected energy, for all three activities, was received by an Innovative Transducers, Inc. (ITI) ST-5 streamer and recorded by Delph Seismic or Delph Win acquisition software. The streamer contains 10 hydrophones evenly spaced every 0.610 m. Phones 4 - 8 (97LCA01); 4 - 9 (97LCA02); and 3 - 8 (97LCA03) were used for all lines, with the exception of 97LCA03, which used phones 3 - 6 on July 15. The streamer was positioned either directly behind the boomer sled, or directly behind the research vessel (parallel to the boomer sled), with a lateral separation of approximately 4 m. Refer to figure 1 included with this archive for a diagram of the acquisition geometries. The sample frequency of the data varied between 12 and 16 kHz, and record lengths between 50 and 100 ms. The shot spacing was highly variable, however, based on survey speeds of 2 knots and a shot rate of every 0.5 s, shot spacing was about 0.514 m

The unprocessed seismic data are stored in SEG-Y, integer, Motorola format, which is a standard digital format that can be read and manipulated by most seismic processing software packages (Barry and others, 1975). The SEG-Y formatted trace files have a .tra extension. Additional recording parameters for each trace file can also be found in the .par file associated with each .tra file. However, the .par files included here are only needed to process or display the data with Delph Seismic software. Also provided are example Seismic Unix scripts that allow the user to strip off navigation fixes from the SEG-Y headers, along with a fix for every 500 shots, and produce a filtered and gained GIF image of each profile. NOTE: Navigation data were recorded to two different sections of the SEG-Y trace headers, creating two navigation datasets. For details, see the Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report under the Data Quality Information section below. 

The printable profiles provided here are GIF images that were filtered and gained using Seismic Unix software.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The validity or accuracy of seismic reflection profiles is highly qualitative and depends on equipment and operating condition variables. Visual inspection of the images rendered from the data did not show any major anomalies.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
These data are from different cruises conducted on different vessels with different acquisition equipment and acquisition geometries; however, for most purposes, the profile data are comparable for all cruises.
Completeness_Report:
These data are collected along tracklines (2-D) and are therefore inherently incomplete. Geologic details between lines must be inferred. Line halfmo1 was terminated early due to a software malfunction and no data were recorded for line halfmo2. No data were recorded for line irl_4; therefore, it is not included in this archive.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
As the sub-bottom data were acquired, the position of the vessel was continuously determined by a Rockwell Collins PLGR GPS receiver, which is accurate to within 3 to 5 m. Positions were recorded and written to the trace headers in latitude and longitude coordinates about every 60 s. The ASCII navigation files and trackline maps have not been corrected to reflect the varing offsets between the boomer and GPS antenna. Refer to figure 1 included with this archive for a diagram of the acquisition geometries, including the GPS offset measurements. NOTE: The navigation data written to the "Source coordinates" SEG-Y trace headers (bytes 73 - 80) are only accurate within 1 s of arc, or 31 m. Additional navigation data were recorded more accurately (between 3 - 5 m) to the "Unassigned" trace headers (bytes 181 - 240) by the Delph Seismic acquisition software, these data were used to produce the trackline maps. Please see the SEG-Y Format page for a detailed description of the SEG-Y data format including byte number assignments and header value descriptions. The Delph Seismic navigation data can be accessed from the Navigation page under the Raw Shotpoint Navigation section.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Boomer data are relative to lake and sea level. However, varying recorded static shifts of the data have been known to occur. Therefore, these data are not to be used for bathymetry.
Lineage:
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Boomer processing: These data were originally recorded in Delph Seismic format onto Iomega Jazz Disk. They were later converted to SEG-Y format using Delph Seismic processing software and archived onto compact disc. The original trace files for line sb_2 were each divided into two or more trace files (for example, sb_2 became sb_2_a and sb_2_b) because the original total number of traces exceeded the maximum allowed by the processing software. The SEG-Y data were processed with Seismic Unix to produce GIF images of the seismic profiles included in this report. A representative boomer processing sequence consisted of (1) running a bandpass filter of 300-500-2500-3000 Hz, (2) applying automatic gain control, (3) displaying PostScript, and (4) converting of PostScript image to a GIF image.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Navigation processing: Shotpoint navigation, start of line, and 1,000-shot-interval location files were extracted using Seismic Unix software and output as ASCII text files; they were then processed with PROJ.4.7.0 (http://trac.osgeo.org/proj/) to generate UTM coordinates from latitude and longitude coordinates. Text files for each seismic line were concatenated into two comma-delimited text files (for use with ESRI software), one containing unique shotpoint positions (97lca01.txt, 97lca02.txt, and 97lca03.txt) and another containing the 1,000 shot interval locations (s97lca01.txt, s97lca02.txt, and s97lca03.txt); both can be viewed within the nav folder, refer to the Browse_Graphic section above for details.
Process_Date: 2008 and 2009
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
All concatenated, comma-delimited text files were imported into ArcGIS and saved as either a point or polyline file in the ESRI shapefile format.
