Other ID: 85-02
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): Rafael W. Rodriguez
Data Type(s): Seismics: Sparker, Sampling: Geology, Location-Elevation: Navigation
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Collect high-resolution seismic profiles at the river mouths of the Rio Grande de Arecibo and Rio Cibuco to help determine vibracoring sites for the heavy minerals study. Collect seismic profiles from Rio Bayamon to Rio Loiza nearshore areas to help identify sand deposits to be used as borrow sites for beach nourishment projects in the Metropolitan area.
Start Port/Location: San Juan, Puerto Rico
End Port/Location: San Juan, Puerto Rico
Start Date: 1985-06-05
End Date: 1985-07-10
Equipment Used: Sparker system, Alpine Vibracorer, Motorola Mini-Ranger III, Raytheon radar
Information to be Derived: Grain size analysis; Sea floor map;
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: High-resolution seismic profiles were obtained at the river mouths of the Rio Grande de Arecibo and Rio Cibuco. These profiles will help determine vibracoring sites for the heavy minerals study. The seismic profiles from Rio Bayamon to Rio Loiza nearshore areas will help us identify sand deposits to be used as borrow sites for beach nourishment projects in the Metropolitan area.
