Equipment Used
Identify and document seafloor disruption due to trawling for fish.
Information to be Derived
Maps of surface morphology derived from sidescan mosaics.
Sidescan-sonar data collected in 3 areas (EXP1, BB, and COD), and video
collected in 2 areas (EXP1 and BB). Robert McConnaughey directed the collection
of numerous sediment samples for examination by National Marine Fisheries
Service biologists.
This was a cooperative cruise with NMFS.  The USGS has the sidescan
data and video, NMFS has the sediment samples.
