Abstract:

This report presents the results of the Phase II fabrication and operations activities associated with the initial Marine Seismic System MSS at-sea-test accomplished on March 1981. The at-sea-test operations was conducted using the Deep Sea Drilling Project DSDP drillship Glomar Challenger for an estimated period of six days. The overall MSS deployment program plan and associated costs estimate has been upgraded to reflect the emplacement of one borehole and the deployment of a configuration I Borehole Instrumentation Package BIP system in the North Pacific during the period of August 1982.
