Summary of Activity and Data Gathered:

Staff: Kenneth E. Parolski

Notes: These lines were the lines originally planned for the June cruise that never was. These lines will assist in the interpretation of the transition from the offshore data set to the nearshore profiles and shore data. These lines were planned to connect the ends of all of the 2000-foot shore normal profiles and extend the data further offshore with lines also at 5000 and 7000 feet offshore. Original Center People field contained: Ken Parolski (Electronics Technician). Original Submitted By field contained: Dale Liebenthal.
