Article Type: Meeting abstract

been the object of much publicity and interest. This paper describes the "single-boat" method of marine seismic surveying as it is conducted by GSI. The single-boat method of marine seismic surveying has been used successfully to explore in many areas where it would be difficult to explore with conventional methods. The application of this method to the California offshore area would require certain changes in the present system and the addition of another boat. However, such changes appear to be entirely feasible within present economic considerations.
