Field Activity 2017-323-FA

Identifier 2017-323-FA
Alternate names 17BIM01, 17BIM02, 17BIM03, 17BIM04
Purpose Collect single beam bathymetry and seismic profiles along the Louisiana Chenier Plain coastline from Marsh Island to Sabine Pass, TX.
Location Leg 1: Eastern Chenier Plain and Marsh Island
Summary Collected 532 single beam bathymetry and 82 sub-bottom lines.
Info derived Single beam bathymetry and sub-bottom profiles.
Comments This will be leg 1 of 2 trips to survey the full extent: Sub FANs: 17BIM01 = R/V Sallenger - SBB + chirp 17BIM02 = R/V TwinVee - SBB 17BIM03 = R/V Shark (White = WVR1) - SBB 17BIM04 = R/V Chum (Blue = WVR2) - SBB

25' Parker
Twin Vee (Jabba Jaw)
22-ft Twin Vee This boat has a carrying capacity of up to 1500 pounds and up to 7 people and a shallow draft (9 inches empty). This boat's cat hull design results in a smoother ride in choppy water, at the expense of a slightly deeper draft. This boat is powered by two Yamaha 70hp motors.
