Multichannel Seismic Reflection Data - SCAR - Ross Sea 1987-1988, SDLS CD-ROM vol 2

These data are stacked multichannel marine seismic reflection data from six lines recorded during 1988 in the Ross Sea, Antarctica, by the Bundesanstalt fur Geowissenschaften und Rohstoffe (BGR). under the auspices of ItaliAntartide, the Italian National Research Program in Antarctica. The following data types are included for each line: computer display images, location maps, and the digital seismic data. Software is provided to view the images, to plot selected portions of the data to the screen, and to convert the data into SEG-Y formation. The CD-ROM was produced in accordance with the ISO 9660 Standard. The display software runs only under DOS. All text files are in ASCII format.
