Title:
Vibracoring Survey data of field activity 07SCC05 (G-5-07-GM) in Chandeleur Islands, Northern Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana, Mississippi from 06/18/2007 to 06/25/2007
Abstract:
United States Geological Survey, Florida Integrated Science Center, Saint Petersburg (Coastal and Marine Geology Program),University of New Orleans,Louisiana Department of Natural Resources. Chief Scientists: Jim Flocks, Mark Kulp. Vibracoring Survey data of field activity 07SCC05 (G-5-07-GM) in Chandeleur Islands, Northern Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana, Mississippi from 06/18/2007 to 06/25/2007, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/g/g507gm/html/g-5-07-gm.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:

Notes -
All Chandeleur Island area near shore cores are named 07SCC_core #GH,
(GH) for R/V Greenhead. This study of the near shore vibracores (from the
islands shoreline to ~4 km from the islands shoreline) was in conjunction with
Cruise 07SCC04, which obtained vibracores offshore. The combined cruises
completed transects on the gulf and bay sides of the islands.
