Field Activity 00SCC02

Identifier 00SCC02
Alternate names G-1-00-LA
Purpose Characterization of the Geological Framework, Mapping sediment distribution, and locating offshore sand resources.
Location Barataria Basin, Northern Gulf of Mexico - Louisiana
Summary Collected 50 single-channel boomer seismic lines. Characterized the geological framework.
Info derived Geophysical data is being used to determine sediment distribution and thickness, and to locate sand deposits to be used in Louisiana beach renourishment projects.
Comments These FACS logs were generated by Gina M. Peery in August of 2001, using the handwritten logbooks and personal accounts of the scientist and crew members.
