FDSN Network Information

FDSN code XZ (2013-2013) Operated by USGS Woods Hole
Network name Gulf of Mexico USGS Hydrates (GoM Hydrates) Deployment region United States
Start date Jan. 1, 2013 End date Dec. 31, 2013
Short description

The USGS has acquired OBS and high-resolution 2D streamer data at two sites in the Gulf of Mexico where gas hydrates are known to exist below the seafloor. At GC955, we deployed 21 OBS for a period of approximately 6 days and acquired approximately 400 km of streamer data. At WR313 we deployed 25 OBS for a period of approximately 6 days and acquired approximately 450km of streamer data. The purpose of this data acquisition is to extend high-resolution site-characterization away from the on-site boreholes where extensive LWD data have been acquired, and to develop methodologies for use in gas hydrate studies at other sites.
