This report reviews available seismic-reflection data from North Carolina's continental shelf and adjacent offshore region. Data on file at the North Carolina Geological Survey includes almost 600 miles of multi-channel seismic-reflection profiles from the northeastern Coastal Plain of North Carolina. The stratigraphic interval represented on these seismic lines includes the lower Neogene, Paleogene, Cretaceous, and crystalline basement. Other relevant data sources on file at the North Carolina Geological Survey include geologic reports, well samples, well logs, and synthetic seismograms.
This report also lists sets of seismic data from the North Carolina shelf and offshore area which were collected by agencies of the federal government and various academic institutions. The geographic coverage of these data sets is shown in Appendix 2. 14 pages. By Larry Zarra, 1990.
