We thank Rita Byrd, formerly of the USGS in St. Petersburg, Florida, for her field support during boomer data collection. We also thank Bob Seal and Paul Connor of UNO for their work during the vibracoring and other portions of these cruises. We are also grateful to R/V G.K. Gilbert Captains Richard W. Young of the USGS in St. Petersburg, Florida; Kevin Geraghty, formerly of the USGS in St. Petersburg, Florida; and Dave Bennett of Eckerd College for their assistance in data collection. This document was improved by the reviews of Tonya D. Clayton and Asbury H. Sallenger of the USGS in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The data archived here were collected as part of a Lake Pontchartrain Basin Geologic Framework and Coastal Processes Study. This work was part of a multidisciplinary evaluation of the geology, geomorphology, coastal processes, and environmental quality of the Lake Pontchartrain Basin. This study is part of the USGS Geologic Framework and Processes (GFP) Project. For further information about this study, refer to <http://coastal.er.usgs.gov/pontchartrain>.
