Eastern North American Margin Community Seismic Experiment

Researchers Dr. Matt Hornbach, Dr. Beatrice Magnani, Ben Phrampus and Casey Brokaw from the SMU Geothermal Lab and SMU Huffington Department of Earth Sciences are participating in the Eastern North American Margin (ENAM) Community Seismic Experiment (CSE).  

General information on the ENAM Community Seismic Experiment is available on the project website and on the GeoPRISMS website.  

ENAM CSE scientists gathered marine seismic data along several 2-D lines offshore North Carolina in September and October 2014 using the acoustic source of the R/V Marcus Langseth and ocean-bottom seismometers of the US OBS Instrument Pool that were deployed from the R/V Endeavor.  Seismic data from the R/V Marcus Langseth and the OBS data from the R/V Endeavor are available for download

The air-gun shots from the R/V Marcus Langseth were also recorded by an array of land seismic stations from IRIS/PASSCAL in the adjacent coastal plain of the ENAM CSE work area. The onshore-offshore data have now been released, and they are available from the LDEO/UTIG Academic Seismic Portal. 

Processed Endeavor OBS data can also be downloaded from the Academic Seismic Portal.
