Field Activity 96GFP01

Identifier 96GFP01
Alternate names G-1-96-LA
Purpose Lake Pontchartrain Geologic Framework and Coastal Processes study was to analyze environmental change focusing on evaluating environmental conditions, sediment quality, coastal processes and geomorphology.
Location Lake Pontchartrain, Louisiana (Rigotets and Chef Manter Pass, LA and Lake Borgne, LA), Louisiana
Summary Bathymetry, boomer (24 lines), vibracore.
Info derived Bathymetry interpretation for geologic shoreline changes. Vibracores used to derive high-resolution sedimentation patterns post Pleistocene geologic framework.
Comments G-1-96-LA - These FACS logs were generated by Chandra Dreher in June of 2003, using the handwritten logbooks and personal accounts of the scientist and crew members. Contains Vibracore samples with three different sample names consisting of PON96-#, RIG96-#, LB96-#. These samples are stored at the University of New Orleans, New Orleans, LA (for further information, contact Phil McCarty
