Multiazimuth towed-streamer acquisition

1. n. [Geophysics]
A marine seismic data acquisition method in which a conventional narrow-azimuth towed-streamer configuration is used to acquire data over a survey area in more than one direction. The number of directions is typically three or more. The azimuthal range for a multiazimuth survey is not continuous in azimuth, but is well sampled along the shooting directions.
