Field Activity 98GFP01

Identifier 98GFP01
Alternate names G-1-98-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 (South Shore Dredge Pits, NE Pit in front, Louisiana t lake front, LA), Louisiana
Summary A total of 75 cores were collected; 26 vibracores and 49 box cores.
Info derived Vibracores used to derive high-resolution sedimentation patterns of post Pleistocene geologic framework. Box cores to determine down core geochronology, contaminate history and palynological studies.
Comments 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. Box cores with sample site number IDs are stored at the USGS St. Petersburg downstairs SE corner core lab (contact Jack Kindinger Vibracores with sample ID name PON97 are stored at the University of New Orleans, New Orleans (contact Phil McCarty These data can be accessed using the Louisiana Sedimentary and Environmental Database Internet Map Server (LASED IMS) located on line at:
