Data Type(s): Sampling: Chemistry, Sampling: Geology, Environmental Data: CTD, Sampling: Biology, Imagery: Photo, Visual Identification: Ground Truthing, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sonar: Sidescan, Time Series: Mooring (physical oceanography), Environmental Data: Current, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler
Scientific Purpose/Goals: This cruise was conducted as a part of the sediment transport component of the MMS California OCS Phase II Monitoring Program. Data were successfully collected during the spring/summer of 1987. This cruise was designed to obtain data during the winter season. The specific objectives were: 1. conduct a sidescan survey at project sites R8, PJ1, and R9; 2. deploy 2 surface guard buoys at each site (R8, PJ1, and R9); 3. deploy 3 subsurface current meter moorings at R8, PJ1, and R9; 4. deploy 2 GEOPROBE tripods at R8 and PJ1; 5. collect box cores for detailed sediment analyses; and 6. collect hydrographic and suspended matter samples.
