  Description:
    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.

    Purpose:
      These data and information are intended for science
      researchers, students from elementary through
      college, policy makers, and general public.

    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
