|1961-'72: O.G.S Marine Geophysical surveys
In the years 1961-1972 the Experimental Geophysical Observatory of Trieste (O.G.S.), carried out several marine geophysical prospectings in the Mediterranean sea. Starting from '69 also seismic reflection surveys were carried out, using digital recording systems and various seismic sources. The geophysical lines, mainly seismic, have been compiled, studied, interpreted and published by the Authors in the following Volumes of the B.G.T.A(*)

In order to retrieve all these data in a useful and digital database, a new Project was designed and financed in the framework of the EC 5 Programme:
The 'SEISCAN' project [ www]In the period 1997-2003, the Project's Partners produced an on-line dataset consisting of 10.392 scanned images of reflection seismic lines, over 1 Million seismic lines km long, covering the Mediterranean and other Euro-Seas. We have collected all the italian location lines in a dedicated image-page.
