Field Activity 2018-322-FA

Identifier 2018-322-FA
Alternate names subFANS = 18CCT01, 18CCT02, 18CCT03, 18CCT04
Purpose Reoccupy previous single-beam bathymetry survey tracklines and acquire seismic subbottom lines that traverse the surf zone by beach launching the 512i.
Location Fire Island National Seashore, Long Island, NY
Summary Collected 416 single beam bathy lines, 193 SVP casts and 115 chirp 512i lines.
Info derived Single beam xyz data; sound velocity casts; seismic subbottom profiles; and GPS base station and GPS boat files used to process DGPS.
Comments R/V Sallenger seismic will be the overall FAN; R/V Sallenger SBB = subFan 18CCT01, R/V Shark SBB = subFAN 18CCT02; R/V Chum SBB = subFAN 18CCT03, Sled = 18CCT04
