      CRUISE NEWS: R/V DAVID JOHNSTON

      In mid-January 1999, the David Johnston returned to central San

      Francisco Bay for follow-up studies of three bedrock knobs that

      rise above the unconsolidated sediment to water depths of <39'

      (LLW).

      The rocks are within the general westbound traffic zone and about

      200 m from the Deep Water Traffic Lane where oil tankers and cargo

      vessels with drafts of 50' routinely enter the bay; thus a

      potential catastrophe awaits.

      The rocks have been lowered by blasting in the past (late 1800s and

      early 1900s) and the Harbor Safety committee is meeting frequently

      to determine how to tackle this problem under present rules and

      regulations.

      At their invitation, John Chin and Paul Carlson have attended

      several of the meetings.

      We (Mike Boyle, Paul Carlson, John Chin, and boat skipper Gordon

      Smith) ran very successful hi-res seismic lines and a few side-scan

      sonar lines across the rocks and over some of the sand shoal areas.



      Hank Chezar joined us for one day and we obtained some good video

      over two of the rocks and over one of the sand shoals.

      Fortunately, we had our camera deployment before the rains came to

      muddy up the water.

      The accompanying photo shows Hank testing the camera system before

      we left Pier 39 in San Francisco.


      Similar information is available for thousands
      of other USGS/CMG-related Activities.

      If known, available are Activity-specific
      navigation, gravity, magnetics, bathymetry,
      seismic, and sampling data; track maps; and
      equipment information; as well as summary
      overviews, crew lists, and information
      about analog materials.
