AKA: none

Other ID: S-4-10-PS,S-04-10-PS

Status: Completed

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

Funding Program(s): Coastal Habitats in Puget Sound (ZP00AZZ)

Principal Investigator(s): Eric Grossman

Affiliate Investigator(s):

Information Specialist(s): David Finlayson

Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Boomer, Sonar: Sound Velocity

Scientific Purpose/Goals: To map seafloor bathymetry and morphology and collect CHIRP seismic reflection profile data to characterize delta-bay habitats, sediment thickness, sediment facies, and recent change in sedimentation history


Start Port/Location: La Conner, WA

Start Date: 2010-02-06

End Date: 2010-02-14

Equipment Used: YoNav, soundvelocityprofiler, Chirp

Information to be Derived: Seafloor bathymetry and acoustic backscatter to characterize benthic morphology and habitats; CHIRP seismic reflection profile data to quantify sediment thickness, sediment facies, and recent sedimentation history
