Identifier 01RCE02
Alternate names G-2-01-LA
Purpose To evaluate the storage and transport of particle reactive, environmentally relevant contaminates through the Mississippi River and Atchafalaya River delta complexes to the near-shore Gulf of Mexico.
Location Mississippi Delta (south Pass & Garden Bay, Atchafalaya River, Atchafalaya Delta), Louisiana
Summary Collected 10 single-channel boomer seismic lines along with 6 chirp lines in the Mississippi River Delta. Collected 5 boomer seismic-lines along with 5 chirp lines in the Atchafalaya River Delta. also 7 vibracore samples were taken from the Atchafalaya Delta.
