    This high resolution marine multi-channel seismic survey commissioned by the Institute of Geological Sciences on behalf of Department of Energy took place in the Northern North Sea during 1st-27th November 1979 (Phase 1) aboard MV Aqua Star and 1st-14th February 1980 (Phase2) aboard Gardline Tracker. Phase 1 (Lines 1-5) was carried out by Fairfield Auatronics Ltd and Phase 2 (lines 5B-9) by Gardline surveys Ltd. Line coverage total 445km (Phase1 - 180km; Phase 2 - 265km). Sea floor data were collected using Echo sounder. Subsurface seismic data were gathered using a 9/15KJ sparker and line 4, Fairflex sleeve exploder. Survey details are contained in Fairfield and gardline acquisition reports and BGS technical report WB/MG/81/124.

    This geophysical and sampling survey has been carried out by Institute of Geological Sciences now British Geological Survey (BGS) for BGS, the survey took place in September 1975 mainly in the area of Haig Fras on board the MV Gardline Locator. Shallow geophysical surey work took place at night with sampling operations during the day.The purpose was to collect data as part of the UK regional mapping programme. Sub-bottom profiling data were collected using pinger and sparker. Sea-bed samples were collected using a gravity corer and shipek grab. These data are archived by BGS. No BGS survey report currently available, IGS 1975 annual report contains summary..
