  • In accordance with the mandate of the Italian state (law july 21th 1967, n 613), the national oil and gas company (AGIP) acquired a large network of marine seismic data in several areas of the italian exclusive economic zone (EEZ) that have been named "Zona" marked by a capital letter from A to G. The seismic lines were available only as paper prints. Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale - OGS in collaboration with the italian Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) undertook a project to recover and transform the format of these paper sections in order that they can be used with modern technologies. Vintage data recovery represents a big opportunity for both the scientific and Oil and Gas community, since these data are generally characterized by high penetration and wide regional extension that would be very difficult to obtain nowadays, considering environmental, geopolitical and funding issues. This dataset (Zona C) corresponds to the area of the Strait of Sicily.

  • During austral summer1989-90 the National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics - OGS conducted marine geological and geophysical surveys off Wilkes Land, and around the Balleny Islands. During this cruise 1284 km of 30-fold multichannel seismic reflection (MCS) data were collected between longitude 165 and 176 degrees East, and latitude 61 and 66 degrees South. The surveys were carried out by the research vessel OGS Explora. The 14 second, 4 ms sample rate, digital MCS data were recorded on a SERCEL SN 358 DMX system. The source consisted of an airgun array with a total volume of 22.5 litres fired every 50 meters into a 3000 m cable consisting of 120 hydrophone groups towed at an average depth of 12 m. A GPS + TRANSIT satellite receiver system was used for navigation. Processing of the data generally followed a conventional sequence: Reformat, Quality control, Amplitude recovery, Deconvolution, Velocity analysis, NMO corrections, Mute, Trace weighting, Stack, Mixing, Filter, Dynamic trace equalisation.

  • Complementary with the ANTSSS project funded by EUROFLEETS, ODYSSEA aimed at investigating the sediment drifts to the west of the Hillary Canyon (Ross Sea continental margin) by means of seismic and oceanographic data to contribute to the understanding of past and present ocean dynamics and glacial history of this Antarctic sector. During the 32nd PNRA expedition, OGS Explora collected over 240 km of Single Channel Seismics (SCS), 2700 km2 of bathymetry, 500 km of sub-bottom, 6 gravity cores for a total of nearly 30 m of sediments, 4 box cores, 25 XBT launches, 2 rosette casts with water sampling, CTD, L-ADCP, turbidity and florescence probes. Part of the seismic data have been initially published in Conte R et al (2021) Bottom current control on sediment deposition between the Iselin Bank and the Hillary Canyon (Antarctica) since the late Miocene: An integrated seismic-oceanographic approach.

  • During Austral Summer1991-92 the National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics - OGS conducted marine geological and geophysical surveys over the Antarctic Peninsular and the Bransfield Strait. During this cruise approximately 3407 km of 30-fold multichannel seismic reflection (MCS) data were collected in the Antarctic Peninsular and the Bransfield Strait between longitudes 50 and 78 degrees West, and latitudes 60 and 68 degrees South. The surveys were carried out by the research vessel OGS Explora. The digital MCS data were recorded on a SERCEL SN 358 DMX system. The source consisted of an airgun array with a total volume of 71.96 litres fired approximately every 50 meters into a 3000 m cable consisting of 120 hydrophone groups towed at an average depth of 12 m. A GPS + TRANSIT satellite receiver system was used for the navigation. Processing of the data generally followed a conventional sequence: Reformat, Trace-sum with differential NMO, Quality control, Amplitude recovery, Deconvolution, Velocity analysis, NMO corrections, Mute, Trace weighting, Stack, Mixing, Filter, Balance.
