Field Activity Details for field activity 1997-019-FA

Other ID: GSLK97-1

Status: Completed

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

Funding Program(s):

Principal Investigator(s): Stephen Colman

Affiliate Investigator(s):

Information Specialist(s): Stephen Colman

Data Type(s): Imagery: Photo, Imagery: Video, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sampling: Geology, Seismics: Boomer, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler

Scientific Purpose/Goals: Collection of high-resolution seismic reflection data to define the Quaternary stratigraphy of Great Salt Lake and Bear Lake, UT. Data will define rates of sedimentation and tectonic movements and will be used to select and correlate core sites.

Vehicle(s):

Start Date: 1997-07-11

Start Port/Location: Logan, UT

End Date: 1997-07-26

End Port/Location: Logan, UT

Equipment Used: ORE 140 transceiver/1036 transducer sub-bottom profiler, Huntec profiling system (500-2500 Hz), ARGO, P-code GPS

Information to be Derived:

Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Successful test of Elics Delft II data acquisition system.
