Seismic Project Information RR1718
Early Career Seismic Chief Scientist Training 2017 (Cascadia Margin)

Exploring the coast of Oregon, this 2017 R/V Roger Revelle expedition served as a training cruise for early career scientists. The purpose was to increase the number of early career scientists experienced in marine seismology and to demonstrate the value of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography portable MCS system, a UNOLS facility. The seismic reflection profiles collected during this cruise can be used to image the subducting plate and the Astoria Fan, as well as accretionary ridges hosting gas hydrate and pockets of hemipelagic sediment containing paleo-oceanographic information.
