Contract notice: treatment of seismic reflection acquisition
amp;nbsp;The research team used a new 3-D seismic reflection data to map the area, which lies deep beneath the sediment on the sea floor, the report stated.
Mapping and seismic reflection studies indicate that recumbent folds, thrust faults, and high-angle faults are more abundant than was shown by Osberg et al.
Seismic reflection surveys are a method of oil/gas exploration, and have the potential to seriously disturb the marine mammals and fish Qikiqtaaluk Inuit rely upon.
The locations from which the cores were taken were selected based on the geology revealed by single-channel, high-resolution seismic reflection data.

The geo-seismic balanced cross sections show that the thrust faults emanating from the sub-basal detachment within the sedimentary cover sequence, because the crystalline basement is not seen in the seismic reflection data.
Among the topics discussed are geochemical and geochronological constraints on the evolution of the Azores Plateau, the Shatsky Rise ocean plateau structure from two-dimensional multi-channel seismic reflection profiles and implications for oceanic plateau formation, lithium isotope evidence for magmatic assimilation of hydrothermally influenced crust beneath oceanic large igneous provinces, topographic expression of the Danger Islands Troughs and implications for tectonic evolution of the Manihiki Plateau in the western equatorial Pacific Ocean, and environmental consequences of Ontong Java Plateau and Kerguelen Plateau volcanism.
Additionally, Root Mean Square (RMS) attribute maps were calculated for different time windows in order to map seismic reflection strength at different stratigraphic depths.

beginning with an overview of the seismic reflection method in general and its limitations, two major sections focus on the description of seismic stratigraphic techniques themselves--including a manual of basic observations, terminology and classification of seismic facies units and a chapter on well calibration and control--and on the depositional environment and facies interpretation.
