Title:
Chirp and Multibeam Sonar data of field activity Z-2-07-SC in Offshore Orange County, CA from 07/09/2007 to 07/16/2007
Abstract:
Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute,United States Geological Survey, Menlo Park, California. Chirp and Multibeam Sonar data of field activity Z-2-07-SC in Offshore Orange County, CA from 07/09/2007 to 07/16/2007, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/z/z207sc/html/z-2-07-sc.meta.html>.
Supplemental_Information:

Notes -
MBARI's automated underwater vehicle (AUV) for sea-floor mapping and
subbottom profiles. The AUV has a high-resolution Edgetech chirp sonar
profiling system and a multibeam sounding system and uses both Doppler sonar
tracking of the sea floor and an inertial guidance system for position
control. The AUV descends to 50 m above the seafloor with USBL-nav-aided spiral descent.

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.).
