Marine Mammal Monitoring and Mitigation Program




Ion Geophysical (Ion) plans to conduct a geophysical (seismic reflection/refraction) survey and related vessel operations in the Alaskan Beaufort and Chukchi seas from October–December 2012. The primary survey area extends from the U.S.–Canadian border in the east to Point Barrow in the west. Two survey lines extend west of Point Barrow into the northern Chukchi Sea and three short tie lines are proposed near the U.S.–Russian border (Fig. 1). The bathymetry of the proposed survey area ranges from shallow (~20 m) to relatively deep (>3500 m) water over the continental shelf, the continental slope, and the abyssal plain.
