Other ID: IB S-1-01-GM
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): David Twichell
Affiliate Investigator(s): Robert Halley, USGS-St. Pete; Al Hine, USF
Information Specialist(s): David Twichell
Data Type(s): Imagery: Photo, Imagery: Video, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Boomer, Sonar: Multibeam, Sonar: Sidescan
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Use sidescan sonar, multibeam bathymetry, and high-resolution seismic data to map the geologic framework and distribution of deep water reefs west of the Florida Keys. An ROV was used to video the deep-water reef to determine extent and composition of benthic biota.
Start Port/Location: St. Petersburg, FL
End Port/Location: St. Petersburg, FL
Start Date: 2001-09-05
End Date: 2001-09-12
Equipment Used: DGPS, HYPACK, Boomer, Single channel hydrophone, Video camera - deep sea, Multibeam swath bathymetry, Edgetech DF-1000 sidescan sonar, Digital camera, ISIS
Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Cruise ended early due to World Trade Center terrorism and tropical depression forming in the study area.
