Field Activity 97KEY01

Identifier 97KEY01
Alternate names C-1-97-FL
Purpose To fill a major gap in seismic data in a 20-year study of the reef track.
Location Just north of Molasses Reef off north Key Largo (Upper Keys) to east boundary of Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary (Lower Keys), Florida
Summary Collected 52 single-channel boomer seismic lines ( > 300 line kilometers of profiles ) along With 4 sediment cores, one push core and water samples from wells.
Info derived Geophysical data are being used to determine depth to the Pleistocene bedrock surface and Holocene sediment distribution and thickness, and to locate sample sites.
Comments Wells sampled are associated with Gene Shinn's Ecosystem and Restoration Management, ERM, project in the Florida keys region
