Other ID: VERE92-2
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): Stephen Colman
Affiliate Investigator(s): E.B. Karabanov, Limnolog. Inst., Irkutsk
Data Type(s): Biological Field Study: Experiments, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sampling: Biology, Sampling: Geology, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler
Scientific Purpose/Goals: To obtain and quantitatively interpret the sedimentary record of changing climate and limnology in Lake Baikal by collecting high-resolution seismic reflection data to delineate the sedimentary environments beneath the lake, defining how these environments have responded to climate change, and locating and correlating the best sites for coring.
