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.).
