Summary
We gathered Huntec digital high-resolution and
Datasonics SIS-1000 sidescan
over an inner shelf region, a shelf-to-slope region, and over the Humboldt 
Slide.
We collected great views of the midshelf mud belt
as well as the clinoforms that drape the outer shelf and upper slope.
These data will provide the geometrical input into a numerical model
of siliclastic sedimentation, one of the primary objectives of STRATAFORM.
