  Description:
    Abstract:
      Chief Scientist: Art Grantz. Data (pistoncore, boxcore) of
      field activity P-1-94-AR in Arctic Ocean from 07/25/1994 to
      08/30/1994,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/p/p194ar/html/p-1-94-ar.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 -

      pistoncore

      boxcore

      Notes -

      (From 8/12/94 USGS Bulletin)  August 10,1994. Art Grantz sends the

      following progress report: We are working north near 82d N, 175d E doing mainly

      biologic studies of the water column, benthic biology, sea ice studies, and

      air and upper water column chemistry.  The geologic program has been collecting

      the required global change piston and box cores, but no seismic data to date.

      At least two of our piston cores are about 28 ft. long, but none have reached

      bedrock.  Erk Reimnitz is having a field day on and in the ice.  Sea ice

      conditions were moderate early on, but fairly difficult now.  However,

      satellite imagery suggests that ice conditions are somewhat easier to the

      northwest, over Wrangell Abyssal Plain, where we are now headed.  We will try

      to concentrate our seismic and coring program on prime geologic targets between

      85d N and the Pole and 150d and 175d W.

      Worked from Point Barrow to the North Pole.  Two ships are involved, the U.S.

      Coast Guard ship Polar Sea and Canadian Coast Guard ice-breaker Louis S. St.

      Laurent.  Geologic sampling and seismic reflection studies were conducted in

      the55-day expedition across 3,700 miles of Arctic Ocean.  Some cores came up

      bubbling so they were sealed in pressure vessels to test whether they might

      contain gas hydrate.
