Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): Michael Bothner
Data Type(s): Sampling: Geology, Sonar: Sidescan, Location-Elevation: Navigation
Scientific Purpose/Goals: To collect sediment samples for geochemical and geotechnical measurements. In addition to sediment samples, a short sidescan sonar survey will be conducted around transponders at the three tripod sites occupied by Butman.
