Start Port/Location: Lewes, DE
End Port/Location: Lewes, DE
Start Date: 2017-08-15
End Date: 2017-08-22
Equipment Used: navigation, gravitycore, 512 chirp-source, 512 chirp
Information to be Derived: Grain Size, 14C ages, 18O stratigraphy
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: NSF funded; cores will have to be archived at an NSF-funded repository -- likely Oregon State or WHOI.
Staff: Jenna Hill
Notes: We will be using the Oregon State Univ. coring equipment with their "Big Bertha" rig -- it is essentially a piston core system rigged as a gravity core system.
Collaborative NSF-funded project with Coastal Carolina University, Conway, SC.
