Abstract

New seismic reflection data have been used to image intra- and sub-basalt features beneath the Faroe-Shetland basin in the North Atlantic, where flood basalts and their complex internal structure hinder successful seismic imaging. We demonstrate that acquisition and processing of low-frequency, long-offset marine seismic streamer data and recordings from ocean-bottom seismometers have the potential to enhance imaging and interpretation of seismic reflections from within and beneath basalts.
