Abstract:
United States Geological Survey, Pacific Science Center,Washington State Department of Ecology,Washington Sea 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.
Supplemental_Information:

Notes -
rawdata exists offline at:
/rawdata1/2012/W-05-12-PS/bath/ew12_aug_frontier and
/rawdata1/2012/W-05-12-PS/bath/ew12_aug_sdo

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.).
