k293hw.m77t and k293hw.h77t: MGD77T data and header files for single-beam bathymetry data for field activity K-2-93-HW in Kauai, Hawaii from 02/27/1993 to 03/02/1993

Description Single-beam bathymetry data along with GPS navigation data was collected as part of the U.S. Geological Survey cruise K-2-93-HW. The cruise was conducted in Kauai, Hawaii from February 27 to March 2, 1993. The chief scientist was Monty Hampton from the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology office in Menlo Park, CA. The purpose of this cruise was to create a detailed bathymetric map of the Mamala Bay seafloor that delimits the general extent of the acoustically-resolvable dredged material deposits. The geophysical source is unknown. 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/k/k293hw/html/k-2-93-hw.meta.htmlinto 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]
