Worldwide Interpretive Reports for Marine Seismic-Reflection and Other Geophysical Data

This file contains US Geological Survey Open File Reports for Marine Seismic-Reflection data. The majority of these data are available on mylar/black line full-size sections. Lines may be obtained for the entire Open File Report or by individual line. Shot-point navigation maps usually accompany the sections and digital navigation is also available.
