  Description:
    Abstract:
      Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute,United States
      Geological Survey, Menlo Park, California. Chief Scientist:
      Charlie Paull. Dive and Sampling data (navigation) of field
      activity W-1-05-SC in Santa Monica Basin, California
      Continental Borderland from 02/09/2005 to 02/18/2005,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/w/w105sc/html/w-1-05-sc.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 -

      navigation                    data directory exists

      Notes -

      (1) Station IDs reflect the Tiburon dive numbers set by MBARI.

      (2) Sample numbers are generally not consecutive but reflect permanent labels

      on coring and other devices that are randomly chosen before each dive, and

      many of the push cores are reused in later dives. USGS sample protocol could

      not used during dives except for the Activity ID (W-1-05-SC).

      (3) Sample numbers recorded in FACS reflect only those samples that will be

      brought to the USGS for logging, description, and, in most cases, archiving.

      (4) Water samples collected by CTD/rosette sampler are generally not entered in FACS log because samples are processed on board for MBARI program and for Lorenson project.


      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

      Bank's digital data, analog data, and
      metadata is provided through...
