Other ID: NE-4-79
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: western Lake Ontario, Great Lakes, New York, United States, North America;
Principal Investigator(s): Deborah Hutchinson
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sampling: Geology, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler, Sonar: Sidescan
Scientific Purpose/Goals: 1. Collect high-resolution and airgun seismic reflection profiles and magnetic profiles over western Lake Ontario to identify geologic hazards that might be related to the low-intensity earthquake activity in western New York. 2. Collect Alpine piston cores to correlate lithology with acoustic stratigraphy and measure paleomagnetic vectors. 3. Collect Van Veen grab samples for specific bottom types.
