Borehole Seismic Data


ODP logging contractor: LDEO-BRG

Hole: 1250F

Leg: 204

Location: Hydrate Ridge - Cascadia Margin (NE Pacific)

Latitude: 44° 34.1166' N

Longitude: 125° 9.0025' W

Logging date: August 25-27, 2002

Water depth (as seen on logs): 806.5 mbrf

Total penetration: 180 mbsf

Total core recovered: 70.1 m (91 %)


TOOL USED: VSI (Versatile Seismic Imager) and QSST (Inline Checkshot Tool).


The logging data was recorded by Schlumberger in DLIS format. Check shots with the in-line check shot tool (QSST) were acquired at the base of the hole after the repeat run (DIT/APS/HLDT/HNGS/QSST/TAP). Zero-offset VSP stations were taken with the VSI at 5 m intervals between 83 and 173 mbsf. Walk-away VSP surveys along E-W and N-S lines were made with stations at 91, 138, and 172 mbsf.


All processing, including first arrival picking and stacking, was performed by Schlumberger during Leg 204. The data was then converted into SEGY format at the Borehole Research Group of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, using the SEGY Save module in GeoFrame.


Stacks are generally calculated with at least seven good traces.


All the data in the SEGY files are sorted shot by shot (i.e. chronologically).
