Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic,
Principal Investigator(s): Lawrence Poppe
Affiliate Investigator(s): John Masterson, WRD
Information Specialist(s): David Foster
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Boomer, Seismics: Air Gun / Water Gun, Seismics: Bubble Gun, Seismics: Sparker, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler
Scientific Purpose/Goals: We will be collecting high-resolution, Chirp and boomer sub-bottom data to map the Quaternary stratigraphy beneath Wellfleet Harbor and Cape Cod Bay along the western coast of Wellfleet and Truro. The stratigraphic data will be used in models of the glacial aquifer, and for locating wells on land.
