    Abstract:
      Chief Scientists: Randy Koski, Bob Embley, Stephanie Ross.
      Data (bathymetry, underwatercamera, underwatertelevision,
      core) of field activity C-2-94-WO in Blanco Ridge from
      08/27/1994 to 09/06/1994,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/c/c294wo/html/c-2-94-wo.meta.html.

    Purpose:
      These data and information are intended for science
      researchers, students from elementary through
      college, policy makers, and general public.

    Supplemental_Information:

      Equipment Used -

      bathymetry                    sea beam

      underwatercamera

      underwatertelevision          video camera

      core

      Notes -

      (From Sept. 9, 1994 USGS bulletin)  Randy Koski reports that during the

      first three days of their cruise aboard the LANEY CHOUEST (with Bohannon, Gray,

      Reid, Ross, Smith, and Tormanen) deployments of the U.S. Navy's advanced

      tethered vehicle (ATV) and submersible DSV TURTLE have yielded 45 hours of

      videotape and about 25 rock samples from the south flank and crest of Blanco

      Ridge. Accumulations of volcanic rock fragments and evidence for rock

      avalanches on the Ridge flanks are consistent with the record of seismicity

      along this transform fault zone.  This collaborative program with NOAA and the

      NAVY will continue through September 7, with final operations in the east

      Blanco Depression.
