USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program

Coastal & Marine Geology Program

Field Activity Details for field activity 1999-023-FA

Other ID: none

Status: Completed

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

Funding Program(s):

Location: southern Long Island, New York, inner shelf, Hudson Shelf Valley, United States, North America, North Atlantic;

Principal Investigator(s): William Schwab, E. Robert Thieler

Affiliate Investigator(s): Paul Gayes - CCU

Information Specialist(s): E. Robert Thieler

Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sampling: Geology, Seismics: Boomer

Scientific Purpose/Goals: Leg 1: geophysics; Leg 2: vibracoring.

Vehicle(s):

Start Date: 1999-07-26

Start Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA

End Date: 1999-08-06

End Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA

Equipment Used: Alpine Vibracorer, DGPS, SIS1000 Sidescan sonar, Boomer, Grab sampler - Van Veen , Single channel hydrophone

Information to be Derived:

Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Leg 1 went well. Leg 2 was cancelled after determining that the coring rig was overweight relative to ship's specs and thus presented an untenable operation.
