  Description:
    Abstract:
      United States Geological Survey,Washington State Department
      of Ecology. Collect beach topography and nearshore bathymetry
      data at the Elwha River delta data of field activity
      W-03-12-PS in Puget Sound, WA from 05/18/2012 to 05/20/2012,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/w/w0312ps/html/w-03-12-ps.meta.html.

    Purpose:
      These data and information are intended for science
      researchers, students from elementary through
      college, policy makers, and general public.

      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.
