Principal Investigator(s): Walter Barnhardt
Information Specialist(s): Brian Andrews
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler, Sonar: Multibeam, Sonar: Sidescan
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Geologic mapping of sea floor (geophysics only).
Start Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
End Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
Start Date: 2007-07-23
End Date: 2007-08-08
Equipment Used: Submetrix Sidescan sonar, Edgetech chirp subbottom profiler 512i, Real Time Kinematic GPS, SWATHplus-L 117 kHz, Klein 3000
Information to be Derived: Sea floor map; Bathymetric maps;
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Survey collected 100% coverage with swath bathymetry over an area of approx. 350 km2 in northern Cape Cod Bay. Approx. 1300 line km of sidescan sonar and sub-bottom profiles were also collected. Preliminary data processing took place during survey.
