  Description:
    Abstract:
      United States Geological Survey,San Francisco Estuary
      Institute. Chief Scientist: Renee Takesue. Sediment sampling
      data of field activity B-05-11-SF in San Francisco Bay from
      08/22/2011 to 08/31/2011,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/b/b0511sf/html/b-05-11-sf.meta.html.

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

    Supplemental_Information:

      Notes -

      These samples will be collected by the San Francisco Estuary Institute (aboard their vessel) as part of their regional monitoring program.  We are piggybacking on their cruise to collect samples for use in the San Francisco Coastal System Provenance Study


      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.).
