Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: Lake Erie, Ohio, United States, North America;
Principal Investigator(s): Kenneth E. Parolski
Affiliate Investigator(s): Jonathan Fuller
Data Type(s): Sonar: Sidescan, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler, Location-Elevation: Navigation
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Purpose of this cruise was to shoot 3 additional shore-parallel seismic lines along the Ohio shore. Two were to be outside the previously shot lines using all equipment. Third was to be shoreward of all previously run lines, approximately 1000 feet offshore. These data would assist interpretation of transition from offshore data to nearshore and shore data.
