Field Activity 2017-671-FA

Identifier 2017-671-FA
Purpose To provide age constraints on iceberg scour events.
Location South Carolina, United States, Atlantic Ocean
Summary NSF funded; cores will have to be archived at an NSF-funded repository -- likely Oregon State or WHOI.
Info derived Grain Size, 14C ages, 18O stratigraphy
Comments We will be using the Oregon State Univ. coring equipment with their "Big Bertha" rig -- it is essentially a piston core system rigged as a gravity core system. Collaborative NSF-funded project with Coastal Carolina University, Conway, SC.
