Coastal & Marine Geology Program

Field Activity Details for field activity 1998-008-FA

Other ID: M3-98-WO

Status: Completed

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

Funding Program(s):

Location: inner shelf, Washington, United States, North America, North Pacific;

Principal Investigator(s): William Schwab

Affiliate Investigator(s): Pat McCrory (USGS Earthquake, Menlo Park)

Information Specialist(s): PARTNER

Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Location-Elevation: Transects, Seismics: Sparker, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler, Sonar: Single Beam

Scientific Purpose/Goals: High-resolution sea floor mapping using SIS-1000 and GeoPulse/Sparker sub-bottom. PI requests technical support from Woods Hole.

Vehicle(s):

Start Date: 1998-06-21

Start Port/Location: Seattle, WA

End Date: 1998-07-05

End Port/Location: Aberdeen, WA

Equipment Used: DGPS, SIS1000 Sidescan sonar, GeoPulse system, Sparker system, Benthos 7000 , Single channel hydrophone, Echosounder

Information to be Derived:

Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Cruise was very successful with little down time. Raw sidescan and seismic data archived on CD-ROM and is being open-filed (Oct. 1998).
