Description Single-beam bathymetry data along with GPS navigation data was collected as part of the U.S. Geological Survey cruise O-3-99-MB. The cruise was conducted in Point Sur, Monterey Canyon, California from June 25 to June 29, 1999. The chief scientists were Homa Lee from the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology office in Menlo Park, CA and Charlie Paull from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. The overall purpose of this study was to provide samples to use in collaborative studies of sedimentology and geochemistry with Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. The geophysical source was a 3.5 kilohertz (kHz) system. These data are reformatted from space-delimited ASCII text files located in the Coastal and Marine Geology Program (CMGP) InfoBank field activity catalog at http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/o/o399mb/html/o-3-99-mb.meta.html into MGD77T format provided by the NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center(NGDC). The MGD77T format includes a header (documentation) file (.h77t) and a data file (.m77t). More information regarding this format can be found in the publication listed in the Cross_reference section of this metadata file. [More]
