Other ID: WF 80-1
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): Marshal Otter
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Boomer, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler, Sonar: Sidescan
Scientific Purpose/Goals: The cruise purpose was to make a preliminary high-resolution seismic survey and sidescan sonar survey of the designated stretch of NJ inner continental shelf shoreward of the 10 fm depth since this region has been avoided by deeper-draft oceanographic research vessels. The data will be examined to determine presence and distribution of geologic hazards related to possible petroleum pipeline installation.
