Field Activity 2018-323-FA

Identifier 2018-323-FA
Alternate names subFANS = 18CCT05, 18CCT06, 18CCT07, 18CCT08
Purpose Assess the restoration efforts by providing baseline bathymetry using combination of single-beam and multibeam and sub bottom profiles that traverse the surf zone by beach launching the 512i.
Location 7 Mile Island, New Jersey
Summary None yet
Info derived Single beam xyz data (##); sound velocity casts (##); multibeam bathymetry xyz data (##), seismic sub bottom profiles (##); and GPS base station and GPS boat files used to process for DGPS.
Comments R/V Sallenger seismic will be the overall FAN; R/V Sallenger MBB = 18CCT05, R/V Shark SBB = subFAN 18CCT06; R/V Chum SBB = subFAN 18CCT07, Sled = subFAN 18CCT08
