  Description:
    Abstract:
      United States Geological Survey, Menlo Park, California.
      Chief Scientists: Ed Clifton, Rick Starr. Geological data
      (beamtrawl, crabpot, sediment grab sampler, bubblepulser,
      sidescansonar, GPS, rangerange, magnetics,
      integratednavigation, LoranC, RhoRho, vibralift,
      vibratingcore, ottertrawl) of field activity A-1-90-WO in
      Gold Beach-Cape Blanco, Oregon from 09/21/1990 to 10/03/1990,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/a/a190wo/html/a-1-90-wo.meta.html.

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

      ottertrawl

      Notes -

      The navigational system used on the R/V ALOHA cruise, A1-90-WO, was an

      IBM 386 PC based system using inputs from an ASHTECH (MODEL #) gps receiving

      unit and a DECCA 540 delnorte transponder ranging system.  Delnorte was used for

      the majority of the cruise because of its higher degree of positioning accuracy

      being replaced by gps only when the ship was out of range of the land based

      transponder stations or in areas of poor station geometry, i.e. along baselines

      between stations.  The positioning accuracy of the delnorte system is about ____

      when three or more of the stations are being used for the ranging calculations,

      and that of gps about ___________, but can be up to 100 meters when selective

      availability (errors introduced into the gps signal by the defense department)

      is implemented.  Both systems calculate ranges by using electromagnetic signals.

      The travel times from the signals are converted into distances and used to

      determine the ships position.



      GRAIG,

      I wasn't sure about the accuracy of the systems at their best, that is

      why there are blanks.  Also wasn't sure about the model # of the Ashtech.


      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:
