Equipment Used
Lake Pontchartrain Geologic Framework and Coastal Processes study was to
analyze environmental change focusing on evaluating environmental conditions,
sediment quality, coastal processes and geomorphology.
Information to be Derived
Bathymetry interpretation for geologic shoreline changes. Vibracores
used to derive high-resolution sedimentation patterns post Pleistocene geologic
Bathymetry, boomer (24 lines), vibracore.
G-1-96-LA - These FACS logs were generated by Chandra Dreher in June of
2003, using the handwritten logbooks and personal accounts of the scientist and
crew members. Contains Vibracore samples with three different sample names
consisting of PON96-#, RIG96-#, LB96-#. These samples are stored at the
University of New Orleans, New Orleans, LA (for further information, contact
