(from USGS Bulletin 8/18/95) The Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary Project was the beneficiary of a high-resolution multibeam bathymetric survey last week as Humboldt State University's R/V PACIFIC HUNTER mowed the grass on the southern Monterey Bay shelf. The 5- day survey revealed a new trend of seafloor mounds in a north-south alignment northward out from the Peninsula. A relationship to the Monterey Bay fault zone is suggested by the linear edges of some of these mounds, parallel to the Monterey Bay fault zone. Both swath bathymetry and backscatter imagery were collected and gave complimentary information about the seafloor geology. The nearshore sand-bands/ribbons, previously mapped by Hunter et al, were imaged in detail, as was the major pipeline south of the Salinas River. Our crew of Steve Eittreim, Andy Stevenson and Roberto Anima were coached by the visiting dean of multibeam, Larry Mayer of the Univ. of New Brunswick, Canada. The Simrad EM- 1000 system, apparently the state of the art in multibeam bathy, was in some contrast to the platform used: The PACIFIC HUNTER is a 1927 refitted 125-foot coast guard cutter recently given a new life as research vessel, thanks to gargantuan efforts on the part of folks at HSU. She will be berthed at Redwood City for a couple of weeks before repair of one engine and the trek back to Humboldt Bay.
