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
Vibracores used to derive high-resolution sedimentation patterns post
Pleistocene geologic framework.
Summary and evaluation of data is reference in
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. Samples are stored in PON96 at the University of New Orleans, New
