Description Single-beam bathymetry data along with GPS navigation data was collected as part of the U.S. Geological Survey cruise A-1-94-GB. The cruise was conducted in Prince William Sound, Yakutat Bay, Glacier Bay and Icy Strait, Alaska from August 8 to August 17, 1994. The chief scientists were Paul Carlson and Rob Kayen from the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology office in Menlo Park, CA, Ellen Cowan (Appalachian State University), and Ross Powell (Northern Illinois University). The overall purpose of this study was to study high resolution seismic facies to interpret glacial fluctuations in Gulf of Alaska region. The geophysical source was a 12 kilohertz (kHz) bathymetry echosounder. 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/a/a194gb/html/a-1-94-gb.sc.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]
