J394SF   The Klein and Mudseis systems were utilized to obtain digital imagery in 
three primary areas that had been previously mapped:
1) the main tidal channel with its sedimentary furrows;
2) the shallow area east of San Bruno Shoal with its variety of bottome types; and
3) the deep area east of Hunters Point running north to the Bay Bridge which has light and darktonal patches.
Results from this cruise showed that the bottom morphologies had changed very little since previously mapped.
