      Grant. Chief Scientists: Guy Gelfenbaum, Jon Warrick. Collect
      beach topography and nearshore bathymetry data at the Elwha
      River delta data of field activity W-05-12-PS in Elwha River
      Delta from 08/28/2012 to 08/30/2012,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/w/w0512ps/html/w-05-12-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.

      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
