Title:
Sampling and Submersible Dive and Swath Bathymetric and Video data of field activity C-1-97-WO in Washington, Oregon from 09/23/1997 to 10/02/1997
Abstract:
Chief Scientist: Chris Goldfinger. Sampling and Submersible Dive and Swath Bathymetric and Video data (bathymetry, underwatertelevision) of field activity C-1-97-WO in Washington, Oregon from 09/23/1997 to 10/02/1997, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/c/c197wo/html/c-1-97-wo.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:

Equipment Used -
bathymetry Seabeam swath bathymetry
underwatertelevision video cameras
Notes -
NERP


Scorpio (ROV), Seacliff (manned submersible) were used.

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.).
