Other ID: J-39-08-LI
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): Lawrence Poppe
Affiliate Investigator(s): Office of Coast Survey, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
Information Specialist(s): Lawrence Poppe, Nancy K. Soderberg
Data Type(s): Sonar: Multibeam, Sonar: Sound Velocity, Sonar: Sidescan, Location-Elevation: Navigation
Scientific Purpose/Goals: The ship will be acquiring multibeam bathymetry and backscatter datasets to update nautical charts. USGS participation facilitates eventual acquisition of these datasets for geological sea floor mapping applications.
Start Port/Location: New London, CT
End Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
Start Date: 2008-09-15
End Date: 2008-09-25
Equipment Used: DGPS, Klein 531 sidescan, Simrad EM 1000, Reson 7125-SV
Information to be Derived: Sea floor maps
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: One bathymetric survey was completed; two other surveys were partially completed. Although no USGS data were generated during this cruise, grids and imagery will eventually be obtained when data processing is complete.
