Title:
Boomer and Geophysical and Sidescan Sonar data of field activity 97CCT01 (G-1-97-SR) in South Carolina from 06/01/1997 to 06/04/1997
Abstract:
United States Geological Survey, St. Petersburg, Florida. Chief Scientist: Jack Kindinger. Boomer and Geophysical and Sidescan Sonar data (boomer, sidescansonar) of field activity 97CCT01 (G-1-97-SR) in South Carolina from 06/01/1997 to 06/04/1997, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/g/g197sr/html/g-1-97-sr.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:

Equipment Used -
boomer
sidescansonar
Notes -
Coastal Change and Transport. 97CCT01 FACS logs were generated by K. Calderon in January
of 2004 using the handwritten logbooks and personal accounts of
the crew members.
