Title:
Vibracoring Survey data of field activity 07SCC04 (G-4-07-GM) in Chandeleur Islands, Northern Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana / Mississippi from 06/15/2007 to 06/26/2007
Abstract:
United States Geological Survey, Florida Integrated Science Center, Saint Petersburg (Coastal and Marine Geology Program),University of New Orleans. Vibracoring Survey data of field activity 07SCC04 (G-4-07-GM) in Chandeleur Islands, Northern Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana / Mississippi from 06/15/2007 to 06/26/2007, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/g/g407gm/html/g-4-07-gm.meta.html>.

Notes -
Captain: Keith Ludwig
Crew: Nick Ferina, Chandra Dreher, Jordan Sanford, and Julie Bernier.
All Chandeleur Island area offshore cores are named 07SCC_core # and 07SCC_core #BI if in the offshore area of Breton Island (BI). This study of the offshore vibracores (up to ~10 km from the islands) was in conjunction with Cruise 07SCC05, which obtained vibracores near shore and up to the islands to complete transects on the gulf and bay sides of the islands.
