Field Activity 1998-008-FA

Identifier 1998-008-FA
Alternate names M3-98-WO
Purpose High-resolution sea floor mapping using SIS-1000 and GeoPulse/Sparker sub-bottom. PI requests technical support from Woods Hole.
Location inner shelf, Washington, United States, North America, North Pacific;
Summary Cruise was very successful with little down time. Raw sidescan and seismic data archived on CD-ROM and is being open-filed (Oct. 1998).
Comments Woods Hole supported Pat's operations last year (FA 97013). She is basically requesting the same this year, and WHFC personnel responded. Data Curator: Pat McCrory. Project = Cascadia Project, Cascadia Project Information from Foghorn:SIS-1000, GeoPulse Boomer, Digital data acquisition (ISIS), Sparker, Benthos 7000 (fish range), Furuno Fathometer;
175 feet.
