MBMS NEARSHORE STUDIES: In spite of rough seas and nasty weather the David
Johnston completed 19 out of a scheduled 40 days of high-resolution seismic
reflection and side-scan surveys along the nearshore coastal area in the
Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary between Aptos and Ano Nuevo. Roberto Anima,
Andy Stevenson, Steve Eittreim, and Jim Tait (UCSC) report that they, with
support from ETs Mike Boyle and Fred Payne, were able to collect excellent
records that imaged the extent of submarine outcrops and subbottom
features. Correlations with coastal bluff exposures were apparent. The
surveys are part of a continuing program to compile a side-scan sonar
mosaic of the offshore area of Monterey Bay Marine Santuary. Graduate
and undergraduate students from U.C. Santa Cruz joined the cruise to observe
the data collection processes. R. Anima
