Other ID: NE-06
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): David Twichell
Affiliate Investigator(s): David Aubrey - WHOI
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sampling: Biology, Sampling: Geology, Seismics: Boomer, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler, Sonar: Sidescan, Sonar: Single Beam
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Sidescan sonar and high-resolution seismic profiling were done in the nearshore zone (3-30 m water depth) off Nauset Inlet and Coast Guard Beach to map the types and extent of nearshore bedforms and to define the late Pleistocene and Holocene history of the area.
