Notes -
In early September, the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary
(MBNMS) project conducted a very successful 10-day cruise on the
continental shelf between Carmel and the Golden Gate. The cruise was
a very high resolution seismic-reflection cruise aboard the NOAA ship
McArthur. The geophysical leg was designed to delineate the three-
dimensional spatial distribution of areas of sediment erosion,
deposition, bypass, and outcrops within this shelf region. We
used the newly remodeled HUNTEC system to collect approximately
1400 trackline-km of very high resolution boomer data (centered in
the 2-kHz to 2.5-kHz range). The system performed beautifully and
provided high-quality data, at times to subbottom depths exceeding
100 m.


Roberto Anima was co-chief, and Kaye Kinoshita, Rebecca Preston,
and Glenn Spinelli provided support during the geophysical work.
We conducted the cruise at a time when MARFAC was hard pressed with
the BASIX III operation. Fred Payne, Mike Boyle, and Graham Standen
(GEOFORCE tech) got to play with the HUNTEC system during the
geophysical leg. I thank MARFAC and particularly Fred and Mike for
their help in making the cruise successful. (Paraphrased from
Brian Edwards's "CRUISE SUMMARY: MBNMS PROJECT", Western Region
Coastal and Marine Geology Bulletin, November 7, 1997.)
