1994 LOS ANGELES REGION SEISMIC EXPERIMENT

MULTICHANNEL SEISMIC-REFLECTION PROFILING
OF THE
R/V MAURICE EWING

In October of 1994, as part of the Los Angeles Regional Seismic Experiment (LARSE), seismic reflection profiling of the greater Los Angeles area and the Inner California Borderland was conducted aboard the R/V Maurice Ewing. The primary seismic source along three main onshore-offshore lines was the R/V Ewing's 20-element air gun array and 160-channel digital streamer. These air gun sources were also recorded by 170 temporary land recorders, an array of 9 ocean-bottom seismometers (OBS's), and two sonobuoys.
