Quick Reference

The angle subtended between a streamer and the track of the towing vessel when a cross current causes the cable to drift off-line. The feather angle is of considerable importance when the streamer is several kilometres long and multi-fold coverage is to be obtained, because the position of the streamer affects the common-depth-point coverage.
