Field Activity 00SCC05

Identifier 00SCC05
Alternate names G-4-00-LA
Purpose Characterization of the Geological Framework, Mapping sediment distribution, and locating offshore sand resources.
Location Barataria Basin, Northern Gulf of Mexico - Louisiana
Summary Summary and evaluation of data is reference in U.S. Geological Survey Open File Report 01-384 of September 2000. Open File Report 01-384
Info derived Vibracores used to derive high-resolution sedimentation distribution and thickness; to locate sand deposits to be used in Louisiana beach renourishment projects.
Comments These FACS logs were generated by Chandra Dreher in June of 2003, using the handwritten logbooks and personal accounts of the scientist and crewmembers. This cruise 00SCC05 contains vibracore samples BSS00-142 through BSS00-227 of the 227 vibracores collected during this project. Samples BSS00 and 00SS are stored at the University of New Orleans, New Orleans, LA (contact Phil McCarty
