Field Activity 07SCC05

Identifier 07SCC05
Purpose Characterization of the geological framework, mapping sediment distribution, and dispersal of sediment after a major hurricane.
Location Chandeleur Islands, LA, Northern Gulf of Mexico
Summary Near shore of Chandeleur Islands and Breton Island a total of 33 cores were collected. Summary and evaluation of data are referenced in a U.S. Geological Survey Data Series. (*Data Series in progress)
Info derived Grain-size, photographs, interpreted core profiles, and barrier island assessment report to Fish and Wildlife. (* Report in progress)
Comments This study of the near shore vibracores (from the islands shoreline to ~4 km from the islands shoreline) was in conjunction with Cruise 07SCC04, which obtained vibracores offshore. Additional equipment: Stow G-500 Vibracore, 3" x 20' pipe, Chandeleur Island Houseboat
