     Dataset Description: 
      From May 18, 1975, until June 20, 1975, Geophysical Service, Inc., 
      acquired 1,954 miles of multi-channel seismic reflection data. These 
      data were collected under Permit 75-09 issued by the Minerals Management 
      Service (MMS). The MMS acquired these data on September 28, 1976, under 
      Contract 14-08-0001-16413. The MMS is required to keep this information 
      proprietary for 25 years from the date that the Government signed the 
      contract to acquire the information. Therefore, the processed seismic 
      sections are now available to the public through the Marine Geology and 
      Geophysics Division of the National Geophysical Data Center, Boulder, 
      Colorado. They will be responsible for making copies and marketing these 
      data. Under Permit 75-09, one vessel was used. The M/V Cecil H. Green 
      used an air gun array with a capacity of 1,200 cubic inches. The energy 
      sources were suspended from the vessel at a depth of 30 feet. The 
      navigation for this survey consisted of a GEO NAV satellite system, 
      integrated with LORAN C. The vessel towed a 3,525-meter cable with 48 
      groups of hydrophones. The sampling rate was set at 4 milliseconds. 
      Recordings were made on Texas Instrument DFS IV. Data were collected 
      with a 5-second record length. The streamer was towed at a depth of 30 
      feet. The data was processed as a 36-fold stack. The final displays are 
      true amplitude and scaled (after automatic gain control) was applied.
     Purpose: 
      This survey collected data for geological and geophysical exploration of 
      oil and gas on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). The MMS has acquired 
      this data in order to insure that the Federal Government receives fair 
      market value for leases issued for oil and gas exploration and for other 
      regulatory functions.
