Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): David Nichols
Information Specialist(s): David Nichols
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler, Sonar: Single Beam, Sonar: Sidescan
Scientific Purpose/Goals: To test and evaluate high-resolution seismic techniques in shallow water environments.
Start Date: 1997-11-21
Start Port/Location: Popponessett Bay, MA
End Date: 1997-11-26
End Port/Location: Popponessett Bay, MA
Equipment Used: DGPS, ORE 140 transceiver/1036 transducer sub-bottom profiler, ODOM 200 kHz depth recorder, Edgetech DF-1000 sidescan sonar
Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Hard copy of seismic data only. Sidescan recorded digitally. Shallow water testing proved successfull as sidescan data was recorded at the far ranges on a 50 m scale in an operating depth of 1 m or less of water.
Staff: William Danforth, Barry Irwin, David Nichols, Kenneth E. Parolski
Notes: Sidescan recorded digitally and not yet processed at time of post-cruise reporting.
