Organization(s): USGS, St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center
Funding Program(s): Other ()
Principal Investigator(s): Jack Kindinger
Data Type(s): Sampling: Geology
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Characterization of the Geological Framework, Mapping sediment distribution, and locating offshore sand resources.
Start Port/Location: Grand Isle, Louisiana -Sand Dollar Marina
End Port/Location: Grand Isle, Louisiana -Sand Dollar Marina
Start Date: 2000-05-03
End Date: 2000-05-11
Equipment Used: Vibracorer
Information to be Derived: Vibracores used to derive high-resolution sedimentation distribution and thickness; to locate sand deposits to be used in Louisiana beach renourishment projects.
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: A total of 227 vibracores were collected during this project. Cruise 00SCC01 contains vibracore samples BSS00-01 through BSS00-64.
Notes: These FACS logs were generated by Chandra Dreher in June of 2003, using
the handwritten logbooks and personal accounts of the scientist and crewmembers.
These data can be accessed using the Louisiana Sedimentary and Environmental
