Purpose
Characterization of the geological framework, mapping sediment distribution and
coastal erosion of barrier islands.
Information to be Derived
Core description sheets, interpreted core profiles.
Summary
Near- and off- shore of Chandeleur Islands, Breton Island and Curlew Island on
the bay and gulf sides of the islands a total of 77 cores were collected. 71 of
these cores data are referenced in a U.S. Geological Survey Data Series. (*Data
Series in progress)
Notes
This cruise is an up date to USGS
CMG 87039.  87039 data archive included some of the offshore gulf side of the
islands cores (32) and this 87CI updates the previous archive with near- and
off- shore cores on the bay and gulf sides of the Chandeleur Islands, Breton
Island and Curlew Island. A total of 71 cores are referenced in a U.S.
Geological Survey Data Series. (*Data Series in progress). The crew, dates and
platform information was assumed to be the same as 87039. All 1987 Chandeleur
Island area cores are named CI-87-core #, and 4 cores are named CI-87-core
#-CURLEW, a complete reference of the cores are in a U.S. Geological Survey
Data Series. (*Data Series in progress).  The combined cruises completed
transects on the gulf and bay sides of the islands.
Jeff Williams Notes: Collect 40-ft. long continuous vibracores at sites selected 
from hi-res seismic profiles collected in a survey in June 1987. Interpretation 
of the cores and seismic profiles will be used to determine the stratigraphy and 
structure of the shallow subbottom of the region. Long-term purpose of program 
is to locate and identify potential offshore sand borrow areas for beach 
replenishment projects.
