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>
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.).
