Affiliate Investigator(s): Fred Anders, ACOE
Data Type(s): Sonar: Sidescan, Seismics: Boomer, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler, Location-Elevation: Navigation
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Map near shore sand beds to determine volume for potential sand borrow sites for beach replenishment.
Start Date: 1986-04-14
Start Port/Location: Ocean City, MD
End Date: 1986-04-22
End Port/Location: Ocean City, MD
Equipment Used: Klein 531 sidescan, ORE GeoPulse, ORE 140 transceiver/1036 transducer sub-bottom profiler, Megapulse Accufix 500 LORAN-C
Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Track lines were run over nearshore sand beds to determine the volume available for beach replenishment. Approximately one third of the survey was completed before bad weather conditions concluded the job. Another survey will be planned for June 1986, completing the project so that coring can begin shortly thereafter.
