Description:
Abstract:
The U.S. Geological Survey collected high-resolution seismic-reflection data on four surveys (S-N1-09-MB, S-15-10-NC, S-06-11-MB, and S-04-12-MB) and marine-magnetic data on one survey (S-06-11-MB) between 2009 and 2012, offshore of central California between San Gregorio and Point Sur. This work was supported in part by the California Seafloor Mapping Program.

The survey areas span about 120 km of California's coast (including Monterey Bay). Most data were collected aboard the U.S. Geological Survey R/V Parke Snavely. Cumulatively, approximately 1,410 km of single-channel seismic-reflection data were acquired, mainly using a SIG 2mille minisparker. About 44 km of data were collected simultaneously using an EdgeTech Chirp 512. Subbottom acoustic penetration spanned tens to several hundreds of meters, variable by location. Marine magnetic data were collected on approximately 460 km of track lines (mainly in southern Monterey Bay) using a Geometrics G882 cesium-vapor marine magnetometer.

This report includes maps and navigation files of the surveyed transects, linked to Google Earthâ„¢ software, as well as digital data files showing images of each transect in SEG-Y and JPEG formats. The images of bedrock, sediment deposits, and tectonic structure provide geologic information that is essential to hazard assessment, regional sediment management, and coastal and marine spatial planning at Federal, State and local levels, as well as to future research on the geomorphic, sedimentary, tectonic, and climatic record of central California.

Purpose:
Between 2009 and 2012, the U.S. Geological Survey collected high-resolution seismic-reflection data on four surveys (S-N1-09-MB, S-15-10-NC, S-06-11-MB, and S-04-12-MB) and marine-magnetic data on one survey (S-06-11-MB), offshore of central California between San Gregorio and Point Sur (figure 1). The composite survey area spans about 120 km of the coast and includes all of California's State Waters, including Monterey Bay. The survey area includes the mouth and inner portion of Monterey submarine canyon and lies entirely within the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Most data were collected aboard the U.S. Geological Survey R/V Parke Snavely. Cumulatively, approximately 1,410 km of seismic-reflection lines and 460 km of marine-magnetic profiles were acquired.

The study area has particular interest for environmental and geologic hazards considerations and has been the focus of significant recent oceanographic and geologic research (Eittreim and Noble, 2002). An understanding of the region's ecosystems and how they function is fundamental to effective stewardship of California's State Waters and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (Eittreim and others, 2002). The need for accurate characterization of the seafloor and its substrate, including sediment distribution and thickness as revealed by high-resolution seismic-reflection data, is important for building such an understanding, particularly of the region's benthic ecosystem dynamics.

The study area is cut by active faults, most notably the San Gregorio Fault and the Monterey Bay Fault (Greene and others, 2002). The right-lateral San Gregorio Fault is one of the major strike-slip faults in the widely distributed transform plate boundary along the west coast of North America (Dickinson and others, 2005). This fault system extends along the California Coast for about 400 km from Point Arguello northward to Bolinas and has an estimated slip rate of 3 to 7 mm/yr (Wills and others, 2008). The Monterey Bay Fault either converges with or is truncated by the San Gregorio Fault in northern Monterey Bay. The high-resolution seismic-reflection and marine magnetic data collected in these surveys provide detailed information on shallow geologic structure and recent deformation that will be important in further understanding these faults and in improving earthquake hazard assessments.

Finally, these geophysical data will contribute to a range of geologic and habitat map products that will be used for a variety of coastal and marine spatial-planning applications.

Supplemental_Information:
The SIG 2mille minisparker system uses a 500-Joule, high-voltage electrical discharge fired at intervals ranging from 0.5 to 2.5 seconds depending on depth. The source signal frequency bandwidth is about 100 to 1600 Hz. One-half second intervals were used where water depth was less than about 350 m, which characterizes most of the study area. The 0.5 to second firing rate and normal survey speeds of 4 to 4.5 nautical miles per hour yield a data trace about every meter. The data were recorded on a 15-m-long hydrophone streamer in standard SEG-Y 32-bit floating point format with Triton Subbottom Logger (SBL) software that merges seismic-reflection data with differential GPS navigation data. After the survey, a short-window (20 ms) automatic gain control (AGC) algorithm and a 160 to 1,200 Hz bandpass filter were applied to the minisparker data to make the JPEG images in this report. The SEG-Y files have been resampled to 8 kHz. Data quality varies with substrate, with penetration up to 200 to 300 m in inferred fine-grained sediments.

The Edgetech 512 Chirp subbottom profiling system consists of a source transducer and an array of receiving hydrophones housed in a 500-lb "fish" towed at a depth of several meters below the sea surface. The swept-frequency "chirp" source signal is 500 Hz to 4,500 Hz, and data are recorded by hydrophones located on the bottom of the fish. After the survey, a short-window (20 ms) automatic gain control (AGC) algorithm was applied to these data to create the JPEG images. The SEG-Y files have been resampled to 8kHz. Data quality similarly varies with substrate, but penetration rarely exceeds a few tens of meters.

Marine-magnetic data were collected on survey S-06-11-MB using the Geometrics G882 cesium vapor magnetometer. The magnetometer was towed approximately 50 m behind the vessel. Magnetic data were collected at a 10 Hz sample rate along NE/SW transects, simultaneously with the mini-sparker seismic-reflection data, at a line spacing of 1,250 m. Magnetic and seismic-reflection data also were collected along a number of shore-parallel tie lines (see Survey Map). During the survey, a magnetic base station was set up onshore in Moss Landing at Moss Landing Marine Labs (lat 36.7948° N., long 121.7879° W.) to measure the local magnetic field continuously in order to remove diurnal field variations from the offshore survey. Base station readings were recorded every minute using a Geometrics G856 proton precession magnetometer.

Initial processing of the magnetic data involved smoothing, mainly to remove noise from the mini-sparker source. The data smoothing resulted in approximate along-track data point spacing of 10 m (boat speed 4 kts). Further processing included removal of the diurnal field variation by using the magnetic base-station readings and subtraction of the reference field defined by the International Geomagnetic Reference Field (IGRF) for 2011. The processed magnetic data are plotted in profile view above the seismic-reflection data. These images can be accessed from the Survey Map and Data Tables section of this report.
