This report presents the digital seismic data used to locate and characterize the sites drilled during Ocean Drilling Program Leg 197 along the Emperor Seamount chain. Four new drill sites were surveyed over three seamounts: Detroit Seamount, Nintoku Seamount, and Koko Seamount. The main goal of these surveys was to collect site survey data required for drill site location and to provide a detailed seismic stratigraphic record of the sites. This report documents seismic reflection data acquisition, processing, display, and location information collected during Leg 197, along with data from two tracklines collected by the U.S. Geological Survey over Detroit Seamount in 1987.
