Other ID: GSLK97-1
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: Great Salt Lake and Bear Lake, Utah, United States, North America;
Principal Investigator(s): Stephen Colman
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.
