Abstract:
United States Geological Survey, Saint Petersburg, Florida, Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies, Coastal and Marine Geology Program. Chief Scientist: Robert Morton. Coring data of field activity 08SWL01 (A-1-08-LA) in Louisiana Chenier Plain, Sabine National Wildlife Refuge, Cameron Parish,Louisiana from 06/03/2008 to 06/13/2008, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/a/a108la/html/a-1-08-la.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:


Similar information is available for thousands of other USGS/CMG-related Activities.
If known, available are Activity-specific navigation, gravity, magnetics, bathymetry, seismic, and sampling data; track maps; and equipment information; as well as summary overviews, crew lists, and information about analog materials.
If available, access to physical samples is described in the "WR CMG Sample Distribution Policy" at: <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/programs/html/main/sample-dist-policy.html>
Primary access to the USGS/CMG Information Bank's digital data, analog data, and metadata is provided through... <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/>
