Purpose
To determine sediment distribution and thickness behind Bonneville Dam.  
Sediment budget for Columbia River. Geologic control on benthic habitat (salmon, 
white sturgeon).
Information to be Derived
Surficial sediment distribution, sediment thickness, depth to bedrock, sediment 
volume, grain size
Summary
Completed sidescan mosaic of reservoir.
Approximately 30 km of subbottom data were collected
before Davit failed and fish was lost (but recovered 3 days later!).
Samples were collected at 21 sites,
most with good video and still photograpy.
Notes
Columbia River Gorge is windy, with winds greater than
40 knots, gusts up to 50. Swells ran 8-10 feet, with a period of
about 2 s.  Tough place to work in a 30 foot boat.  August is not
the ideal month. Expect better conditions in spring/early summer.
