Title:
Geophysical, processes, sampling data of field activity S-03-13-WO in Mouth of the Columbia River from 05/06/2013 to 06/18/2013
Abstract:
Office of Naval Research,Naval Post Graduate School,University of Miami,United States Geological Survey, Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Chief Scientist: Chris Sherwood,. Geophysical, processes, sampling data of field activity S-03-13-WO in Mouth of the Columbia River from 05/06/2013 to 06/18/2013, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/s/s0313wo/html/s-03-13-wo.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:

Notes -
other; USGS waverunners; leased fishing boat
Note; dates overlap with S-06-13-WO
Cape Windy also used.

Similar information is available for thousands of other USGS/CMG-related Activities.
If known, available are Activity-specific navigation, gravity, magnetics, bathymetry, seismic, and sampling data; track maps; and equipment information; as well as summary overviews, crew lists, and information about analog materials.
If available, access to physical samples is described in the "WR CMG Sample Distribution Policy" at: <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/programs/html/main/sample-dist-policy.html>
Primary access to the USGS/CMG Information Bank's digital data, analog data, and metadata is provided through... <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/>
This page accomodates a variety of search approaches (e.g., by platform, by region, by scientist, by equipment type, etc.).
