Abstract:
United States Geological Survey. Chief Scientists: Homa Lee, Chief Scientist, Holly Ryan, Chief Scientist. Chirp and Coring data (Chirp, gravitycore) of field activity 05028 (M-1-05-WG) in Resurrection Bay and Port Valdez, Alaska from 07/07/2005 to 07/17/2005, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/m/m105wg/html/m-1-05-wg.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:

Equipment Used -
Chirp
gravitycore

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/>
This page accomodates a variety of search approaches (e.g., by platform, by region, by scientist, by equipment type, etc.).
