Atlantic Margins Project: Data Acquisition 2000
In May 2000 nearly 700 km of wide-angle seismic data were acquired
in the North Rockall
Trough using 50 Geopro Ocean
Bottom Seismometers (OBS) aboard the R/V
In addition all shots were also recorded by British
Geological Survey (BGS) landstations on the
Isle of Lewis and the Mainland. On Line E 3881 shots of a 3040
in3 airgun array were recorded
by 48 OBS along a 465 km long profile from the Hebrides Shelf across
the Rockall Trough and
Lousy Bank and reaching onto oceanic crust. Line D has a length of
180 km and 19 OBS
were used to record 1695 shots.

OBS positions (inverted triangles) and landstations (black triangles)
are indicated. The edge of the extrusive basalt is indicated by the
