Mississippi River Project: Day 15

We have continued our traverse of the mighty Mississippi River past Caruthersville, MO toward Osceola, AR. We had allocated days of contingency in our planning to deal with unforeseen issues like losing the streamer and to make multiple passes over areas of interest. With the days remaining, we will overlap the survey in 2008 during this trip, running a multiple line alongside the 2008 traverse where prior faults were mapped, again to gain dip and orientation information (does the fault run north-south, east-west, etc.).
