From Western Region Marine and Coastal Surveys Bulletin, July 12, 1996... SUCCESS ON THE HIGH SEAS OFF EUREKA This week we completed a very successful 9-day survey aboard the RV WECOMA of the shelf and slope offshore of Eureka in the area designated as the STRATAFORM area. One of the major goals of the STRATAFORM Project is to gain a better understanding of how strata are deposited, both in terms of the physical processes and also in terms of the preserved acoustic signatures, such as downlap, offlap, and toplap. A complementary goal is to learn how the signatures combine to form characteristic stratigraphic sequences, such as drapes, aprons, wedges, and sigmoids. An essential element to gain this understanding is the analysis and interpretation of geometries of acoustic reflectors in the upper 50 m of the outer shelf and slope. The cruise aboard the WECOMA of Oregon State University was the second in 10 months devoted to these goals and resulted in over 1100 km of high-resolution seismic-reflection data using the Huntec DTS and high-resolution sidescan sonar using the Datasonics SIS-1000 system. Thanks to an excellent support team from Marfac, and at-sea support extraodinaire from our John Gann and Tom O'Brien from Woods Hole, we achieved all of our objectives, despite some LARGE waves and ubiquitous crab pots. The results are outstanding from our viewpoint, and they should provide lots of new insights for understanding the late Quaternary development of the shelf and slope, particularly with regard to channel flows on slopes, the Humboldt submarine slide, and tectonic deformation of late Quaternary deposits. The data are being processed and archived at present. If you are interested in more information, our cruise report, tracklines, and a few images are available on the web at our marine facility page ---http://marfac044.wr.usgs.gov. Look for it to appear in our WUSGS site on walrus in the very near future. Mike Field amd Jim Gardner Publications - W196NC Cruise Report exists at Woods Hole
