Abstract:

A reconnaissance of the Gulf of Mexico was conducted during February - June 1968. Data collected included seismic reflection profiles, 12 kHz bathymetry, 3.5 kHz normal incidence, total magnetic intensity, bottom sediments sound velocimeter casts, Nausen casts and sea-surface temperature measurements. Preliminary analysis of the data posed interesting questions. Diapirs were recorded on northern and southern tracks and further attempts will be made to link these structures together. A special shoal survey was done off Tampico, Mexico and no hazard to navigation was located. The data will be used primarily to assist in the planning of a cooperative survey in the Gulf with the U. S. Geological Survey. Author
