Abstract : This contract provided support to plan, acquire, and process high resolution multichannel seismic reflection data offshore New Jersey during cruise 270 of the R/V Oceanus. This was part of the STRATAFORM initiative that seeks geologic and geophysical data on the continental terrace at temporal and spatial scales ranging from 0.1 to 100000 yrs and .01 to 1000 m. Our cruise objectives were to collect high resolution reflection images of stratal geometry in the upper 100+ m of the sediment column from the middle shelf to the upper continental slope, and tie these to ODP Leg 150 sites cored and logged in 1993.
