Title:
Boomer data of field activity 94CCT02 (C-2-94-SR) in South Carolina from 08/09/1994 to 08/19/1994
Abstract:
United States Geological Survey, St. Petersburg, Florida,Coastal Carolina University. Chief Scientist: Jack Kindinger. Boomer data (navigation, boomer) of field activity 94CCT02 (C-2-94-SR) in South Carolina from 08/09/1994 to 08/19/1994, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/c/c294sr/html/c-2-94-sr.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:

Equipment Used -
navigation navigation receiver, Trimble Nav Trac GPS receiver with attached DGPS beacon receiver with Geolink XDS 3 software
boomer sub-bottom profiler, Huntec ESU-PSU power supply and plate, ITI ST-5 10-channel streamer with Delph 2 software
Notes -
Coastal Change and Transport. 94CCT02 FACS logs were generated by Karynna Calderon
in January of 2004
using the handwritten logbooks and personal accounts of the crew members.
