Abstract:
Chief Scientist: Roberto Anima. Geophysical data (sidescansonar, GPS, underwatertelevision, VanVeengrab) of field activity J-6-96-MB in Monterey Bay, California from 09/30/1996 to 10/16/1996, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/j/j696mb/html/j-6-96-mb.meta.html>.
Purpose:
These data and information are intended for science researchers, students from elementary through college, policy makers, and general public.

VanVeengrab
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
