Purpose
to collect surface sediment samples
Information to be Derived
sediment grain size, mineralogy, etc.
Summary
These surface samples (top 2 cm) were collected for use in the USGS San 
Francisco Bay Coastal System Fine Sediment Provenance Study.
Samples were collected aboard the R/V Endeavor (owned and operated by the US
Bureau of Reclamation) on a cruise coordinated by the San Francisco Estuary
Institute as part of the regional monitoring program; see URL:
http://www.sfei.org/rmp/
and contracted to Applied Marine Sciences: see URL:

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
