Abstract:

During the period 15 April 1971 to 15 January 1972, work on this project has included both the modification of the equipment and the taking of data with the equipment in its various stages of modification. Modifications include the replacement of laboratory type equipment with less bulky printed circuits and the manufacture of new cutting heads to fit existing coring tools. Data were taken on three field trips, two of which were to the Gulf of Mexico aboard A and M research vessels ORCA and ALAMINOS and one to Baffin Bay, Texas, on a University of Texas research barge. The data uphold the feasibility of in situ measurements of acoustic velocity while coring.
