The USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program (St. Petersburg, FL and Woods Hole, MA) and the University of New Orleans, provided funding, 1987 cruise report, and 2007 field support for the collection and analysis of sediment data archived in this report. Additional funding was provided by theU.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (LDNR). We thank R/V G.K. Gilbert captain Keith Ludwig (USGS, St. Petersburg, FL) for assistance in data collection. Kyle Kelso (Jacobs Technology Inc., St. Petersburg, FL) prepared the ArcGIS and map files used in this report. This document was improved through reviews by Arnell Harrison and Julie Bernier (USGS, St. Petersburg, FL).
The 07SCC04 and 07SCC05 core locations were selected to ground-truth stratigraphic interpretations from seismic profiles acquired during previous surveys (Baldwin and others, 2009; Twichell and others, 2009) and to directly sample stratigraphic variation in the study area (Flocks and others, 2009). Additionally, this report archives the 87039 cruise vibracores collected offshore of the Chandeleur Islands in 1987. The CI_87 vibracores were collected to ground-truth the stratigraphic interpretations from seismic profiles acquired in 1987 (Kindinger and others, 1989; Kindinger and others, 1991; Brooks and others, 1995).
