  Description:
    Abstract:
      Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute,United States
      Geological Survey, Menlo Park, California. Chief Scientist:
      Charlie Paull, MBARI. Dive and Sampling data (ROV) of field
      activity W-1-06-MB in Submarine canyons of the central
      California coast from 04/27/2006 to 05/01/2006,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/w/w106mb/html/w-1-06-mb.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 -

      ROV

      Notes -

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

      (2) Sample numbers for the push cores 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 not entered in FACS log

      because samples are processed on board for an MBARI program.

      
ROV Tiburon and CTD/rosette sampler (all MBARI equipment). Tiburon will be used to map and sample the sea floor (see Purpose and Goals above). The CTD/rosette sampler is for detection of methane gas in the water column within the canyons generally at the ROV dive sites. 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.
