a194yb.m77t and a194yb.h77t: MGD77T data and header files for single-beam bathymetry for field activity A-1-94-YB in Yakutat Bay and Yakutat Sea Valley, Alaska from 08/05/1994 to 08/08/1994

Description Single-beam bathymetry data along with GPS navigation data was collected as part of the U.S. Geological Survey cruise A-1-94-YB. The cruise was conducted in Yakutat Bay and Yakutat Sea Valley, Alaska from August 5 to August 8, 1994. The chief scientists were Paul Carlson, Rob Kayen from the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology office in Menlo Park, CA and Ellen Cowan (Appalachian State University) and Ross Powell(North Illinois University). The purpose of this cruise was to study Hi-Res seismic facies to interpret glacial fluctuations in Gulf of Alaska region. The geophysical source was a 12 kilohertz (kHz) 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/a194yb/html/a-1-94-yb.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]
