  Description:
    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.

    Purpose:
      These data and information are intended for science
      researchers, students from elementary through
      college, policy makers, and general public.

    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/

      This page accomodates a variety of search
      approaches (e.g., by platform, by region,
      by scientist, by equipment type, etc.).
