Abstract:

The Navy Underwater Sound Laboratory in conjunction with Lamont-Doherty Geological Observatory of Columbia University, conducted bottom loss measurements under the PARKA II experiment, at the proposed site for the SPIDER Array, north of Hawaii. These measurements were conducted during two separate cruises from 14 to 25 September and 1 to 8 November 1969. The source ship RV CONRAD detonated 500 and 11,000 foot explosives and the receiving ship USNS SANDS T-AGOR-6 used a single hydrophone suspended to approximately 11,000 ft. This memorandum discusses these cruises. Author
