Description:
Abstract:
University of New Orleans,United States Geological Survey, St. Petersburg, Florida,Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation,National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration,Coalition to Restore Louisiana,United States Army Corps of Engineers,Environmental Protection Agency,University of Georgia. Chief Scientist: Jim Flocks. Bathymetric and Vibracoring data (bathymetry, vibratingcore, boomer, GPS) of field activity 96GFP01 (G-1-96-LA) in Lake Pontchartrain, Louisiana (Rigotets and Chef Manter Pass, LA and Lake Borgne, LA) from 09/13/1996 to 10/11/1996, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/g/g196la/html/g-1-96-la.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 precision depth recorder, Media: digital, Code: pdr, Comment: Used with Geo-Link
vibratingcore Brand: Bradford, Media: 3"x 20' pipe, Code: vc, Comment: pneumatic vibracore
boomer Huntec ESU-PSU
GPS Rockwell PLGR
Notes -
G-1-96-LA - These FACS logs were generated by Chandra Dreher in June of
2003, using the handwritten logbooks and personal accounts of the scientist and
crew members. Contains Vibracore samples with three different sample names
consisting of PON96-#, RIG96-#, LB96-#. These samples are stored at the
University of New Orleans, New Orleans, LA (for further information, contact
Phil McCarty pmccarty@uno.edu).
