Description:
Abstract:
In July of 2005, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in cooperation with the Florida Geological Survey (FGS), conducted a geophysical survey of the Atlantic Ocean offshore of Florida's east coast from Flagler Beach to Daytona Beach. This report serves as an archive of unprocessed digital boomer subbottom data, trackline maps, navigation files, GIS information, 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 revision 0 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.

These data are also available for viewing using GeoMapApp (<http://www.geomapapp.org/>) and Virtual Ocean (<http://www.virtualocean.org/>) multi-platform open source software. In addition, the SEG Y files can also be downloaded from the USGS Coastal and Marine Geoscience Data System (<http://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov>)
Purpose:
The data archived here were collected under a cooperative agreement between the Florida Geological Survey and the USGS.
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, 05FGS01 tells us the data were collected in 2005 for the Florida Geological Survey (FGS) cooperative agreement 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 subbottom line is as follows: yye##a, where 'yy' are the last two digits of the year in which the data were collected, 'e' is a 1-letter abbreviation for the equipment type (for example, b for boomer), '##' is a 2-digit 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 subbottom 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 column and shallow stratigraphy below. The acoustic energy is reflected at density boundaries (such as the seafloor or sediment layers beneath the seafloor), 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 Applied Acoustic Engineering CSP 300 provided 100 Joules of energy per shot. Reflected energy was received by a Benthos Mesh 15-m-long streamer and recorded by Triton Elics International, Inc. (TEI) Delph Seismic v. 2.7 acquisition software. The streamer contains 10 hydrophones evenly spaced every 0.305 m. The streamer was positioned directly behind the research vessel (parallel to the boomer sled), with a lateral separation of approximately 7 m. Refer to figure 1 included with this archive for a diagram of the acquisition geometry. The sample frequency of the data was 24 kHz, and record length was 100 ms. The shot spacing was highly variable; however, based on survey speeds of 3 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 rev. 0, 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.

The printable profiles provided here are GIF images that were filtered and gained using Seismic Unix software. The processed SEG Y data were exported to Chesapeake Technology, Inc. (CTI) SonarWeb software to produce a geospatially interactive version of the profile that allows the user to obtain a geographic location and depth from the profile for a given cursor position on the profile; this information is displayed in the status bar of the browser. Please note that clicking on the profile image switches it to "Expanded View" (a compressed image of the entire line) and cursor tracking is not available in this mode.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The validity or accuracy of marine subbottom 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:
This dataset is from one field activity with consistent instrument calibrations.
Completeness_Report:
These data are collected along tracklines (2-D) and are therefore inherently incomplete. Geologic details between lines must be inferred. No data were collected for lines 05b02 and 05b19-05b23.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
As the subbottom data were acquired, the position of the vessel was continuously determined by a CSI Wireless DGPS Max receiver, which is accurate within 1 m if WAAS is available, or 3-5 m otherwise. Positions were recorded and written to the trace headers in latitude and longitude coordinates about every 1 s. The approximately 30-m offset between the Boomer shot and GPS was not accounted for during acquisition nor have the ASCII navigation files and trackline map been corrected to reflect the offset. Line navigation maps and geospatial profiles generated with CTI SonarWeb software have been corrected for the GPS offsets.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Boomer data are relative to 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: 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.

All the processed SEG Y data were then exported to CTI SonarWeb software to produce a geospatial version of each profile that allows the user to obtain a geographic location and depth for a given cursor position on the profile. Refer to the Supplemental Information section above for details on how to use the geospatial profiles.

Process_Description:
Navigation processing: Shotpoint navigation, start of line, and 500-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 (05fgs01.txt) and another containing the 500-shot-interval locations (s05fgs01.txt); both can be viewed within the nav folder.

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.
Trackline map creation: The trackline map was created using ESRI ArcGIS 10 software. The processed navigation file, 05fgs01.txt, was imported into ArcMap 10 and processed using the Points to Lines ArcScript (D. Rathert, <http://arcscripts.esri.com/details.asp?dbid=12702>) to create a line shapefile of the cruise tracklines (05fgs01_trkln). The 500-shot-interval file s05fgs01.txt and the start of line file 05fgs01_s.txt were imported into ArcMap as point shapefiles 05fgs01_shots and 05fgs01_sol. Please refer to the shapefile metadata included in the ArcGIS map document located under the Software section of this archive for additional details. The location map was exported to Adobe Illustrator v. 14 for further editing then later converted into JPEG format by Adobe Dreamweaver v. 10 Build 4117. The map is unprojected (geographic coordinates, WGS84). The interstates layer used on the trackline map was created by ESRI. The USGS is the originator of all other layers used. A map of trackline navigation for each subbottom profile was also produced with CTI SonarWeb software. Please see the ArcGIS readme file for detailed information about the GIS files used in this report.
