Seismic reflection profiling in Kongsfjorden, Svalbard, August 1974
Datacenter: University of East Anglia, School of Environmental Sciences, Norwegian Polar Institute
Collection: SIOS, ADC, NSDN
Iso topic category: geoscientificInformation, oceans
The dataset contains high resolution seismic reflection profiles from the inner part of Kongsfjorden, printed on paper, with selected profiles photocopied. The profiles were taken in summer 1974 during an investigation into glacial processes and the glacial history of Svalbard by G.S.Boulton. There was no attempt to systematically cover the whole of Kongsfjorden but to establish some profiles in what were judged to be critical or representative locations. It was hoped that the profiling would provide a seismic stratigraphy.
