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>
Primary access to the USGS/CMG Information Bank's digital data, analog data, and metadata is provided through... <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/>
