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

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).
