USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program

Coastal & Marine Geology Program

Field Activity Details for field activity 1992-015-FA

Other ID: VERE92-2

Status: Completed

Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center

Funding Program(s):

Location: Selenga Delta, Buguldeika, Academician Ridge, Maloye Marye, Lake Baikal, Siberia, Russia, USSR, Asia;

Principal Investigator(s): Stephen Colman

Affiliate Investigator(s): E.B. Karabanov, Limnolog. Inst., Irkutsk

Information Specialist(s):

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.
