  Description:
    Abstract:
      United States Geological Survey, Menlo Park, California.
      Chief Scientist: Craig Nicholson, University of California,
      Santa Barbara. Chirp Seismic and Piston Coring data (GPS,
      pistoncore, gravitycore, Chirp) of field activity M-1-05-SC
      in Santa Barbara Basin, offshore Southern California from
      08/19/2005 to 08/26/2005,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/m/m105sc/html/m-1-05-sc.meta.html.

    Purpose:
      These data and information are intended for science
      researchers, students from elementary through
      college, policy makers, and general public.

    Supplemental_Information:

      Equipment Used -

      GPS

      pistoncore

      gravitycore

      Chirp

      Notes -

      The piston coring and chirp profiling operations

      ceased 0800 on 08/26/05 offshore Santa Barbara;

      all but nine of the scientific party were transferred ashore

      by water taxi, including all USGS personnel.

      The R/V Melville then transited to Seattle, WA

      to officially end the leg on 08/30/05.

      Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) identifies the cruise

      as TUIM13MV ending in Seattle.

      TUIM13MV is SI Oceanography's cruise ID

      indicating leg 13 of Expedition TUIMV.

      The expedition was an NSF-funded cruise

      (C. Nicholson, J. Kennett, and C. Sorlien, UC Santa Barbara, co-PIs)

      in collaboration with the USGS CMG Southern California

      earthquake hazard task of the CABRILLO Project.

      In the University of California Santa Barbara records,

      the cruise is recorded as SBCORE.


      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.

      If available, access to physical samples is
      described in the "WR CMG Sample Distribution
      Policy" at:
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/programs/html/main/sample-dist-policy.html

      Bank's digital data, analog data, and
      metadata is provided through...
