Field Activity 2002-031-FA

Identifier 2002-031-FA
Purpose Bear Lake: sidescan sonar, swath bathymetry and Chirp sub-bottom; Foy Lake: Chirp sub-bottom.
Location Bear Lake, Utah, United States, North America;Foy Lake, Montana, United States, North America;
Summary Successful cruise! Bear Lake: Completed mosaic mapping with sidescan sonar and swath bathymetry; supplemented existing seismic data with additional Chirp profiles. Collected bottom samples at 20 stations (stored in Woods Hole with S. Colman). Foy Lake: Completed Chirp seismic survey of entire lake. Acoustic data and samples in Woods Hole with Ch. Sci. Preliminary data given to UT F&WS, UT State Parks and U. Oregon.
