Other ID: none

Status: Completed

Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center

Funding Program(s):

Principal Investigator(s): Richard Wold

Affiliate Investigator(s): Yngrar W. Isachsen - New York State Geol. Survey

Information Specialist(s):

Data Type(s): Electro-Magnetic: Magnetics, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Boomer, Sonar: Single Beam

Scientific Purpose/Goals: This cruise was conducted on southern Lake George which is located on the southeastern side of the Adirondack dome. The dome is currently rising at the rate of 3.7 mm/yr near the center of the dome. The cruise was planned to study unconsolidated sediments for evidence of recent faulting as a result of this rapid domical uplift. It was hoped to locate these recent faults and determine the amount of movement.
