The purpose of this study was to correlate events recorded on seismic records with changes in lithology recorded from sample descriptions from the Continental Offshore Stratigraphic Test (COST) No. B-2 well. The well is located on the U.S. mid-Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf about 146 km east of Atlantic City, N.J. (see location map). Lithologic data are summarized from the sample descriptions of Smith and others (1976). Sonic travel times were read at 0.15 m intervals in the well using a long-space sonic logging tool. Interval velocities, reflection coefficients and a synthetic seismogram were calculated from the sonic log.
ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact
