Equipment Used: Echosounder, DGPS, Digital camera, Boomer, Single channel hydrophone, Sidescan sonar
Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: The shallow sub-bottom and surficial geology were surveyed using seismic reflection, sidescan sonar, and bathymetric systems. Two areas were surveyed: a ~200 km2 area offshore of Folly Beach in central South Carolina, and a ~85 km2 area off of Winyah Bay in northern South Carolina.
