These data were collected under Permit 75-43 issued by the Minerals Management Service (MMS). The MMS acquired these data on August 8, 1976, under Contract 14-08-0001-16402. Under Permit 75-43, the vessel M/V State Wave was used. Four airguns were deployed in this survey with a total capacity of 1,092 cubic inches and a total energy output of 22.6 million ft.-lbs. per line mile. The airguns were towed at a depth of 30 feet. The navigation for all three vessels was Loran C operated in the Rho-Rho mode. The seismic sections are now available to the public.
