      Notes -

      Monterey Bay Marine Santuary Nearshore Studies--Rough

      seas and stormy weather kept the intended cruise of two weeks

      in port for all but five days.  During the first three days of

      operations underwater video footage was collected in the

      vicinity of Ano Nuevo and Scotts Creek.  The video shows a

      striking difference in outcrop types and textural variation

      in sediment type across the nearshore shelf area.  Bad weather

      forced the last two days of operations to  place two week

      after the initial startup time.  Roberto Anima, Jim Tait,

      Peter Galanis, Marge Medrano,  Intern student Betsy Cooper,

      and UCSC Graduate Students Curt Storlazzi, and Deirdre Scholar,

      and Undergraduate Yvonne Rodriguez report they, with the

      support from Mike Boyle and Gordon Smith (skipper), were able

      to collect excellent video coverage and sediment samples

      of six areas covered.  The MBMS nearshore studies has compiled

      an emense data base of side scan sonar and seismic reflection

      records that has undergone preliminary mapping and

      interpretation.  The purpose of this cruise was to ground truth

      the mapping and interpretation with underwater video and

      grab sampling.  Aside from the unfortunate weather problems

      the days worked proved fruitful.  More of the same

      information needs to be collected in the  sites not occupied

      during this cruise. - R.Anima
