  Description:
    Abstract:
      Chief Scientist: Paul Carlson. Geological data (YoNav,
      mudseis, GPS, Kleinsidescan, 3dot5khz) of field activity
      Q-1-96-GB in Glacier Bay National Park from 08/02/1996 to
      08/09/1996,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/q/q196gb/html/q-1-96-gb.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 -

      YoNav

      mudseis

      GPS                           NBS military GPS (Rockwell PLGR)

      Kleinsidescan                 500 & 100 khz Klein side-scan sonar with attached 3.5 khz acoustic profiler (recorded digitally and also analog)

      3dot5khz

      Notes -

      REPORT FROM ALASKA  (from 8/30/96 WRUSGS Bulletin)

      Dave Hogg, John Gann, Terry Bruns, and Paul Carlson joined forces

      with our new siblings from National Biological Service (NBS) and our

      cousins from the Park Service for a productive 10-day (8/1-10)

      sidescan-sonar (SSS) survey in Glacier Bay, AK. We collected 500 kHz

      SSS + 3.5 kHz profiler data in five portions of Glacier Bay National

      Park. The areas insonified are Dungeness Crab and Halibut study

      sites. We will provide seafloor habitat interpretations that the

      biologists hope will explain distributions of those two commercial

      resources. We were fortunate to be able to sample some of the very

      tasty resources as well. In one study area, to the biologists' glee, we

      obtained good imagery of a sunken skiff that the Skipper of the R/V

      Quillback identified as "Tommy's boat," and we also saw a pile of

      Tommy's crab pots a short distance away (overloading of pot +

      choppy seas = sinking). Bruns even saw the sun one day and realized

      his wish to see the eastern side of the Fairweather Range (beautiful view).
