Tom Edsall Chief Scientist, USGS BRD
Equipment Used
Sample the bottom sediment in and near the
landslide to determine the affect of the slide on benthic infauna,
determine the grain size of the sediment that was transported offshore in
the 1995 landslide.
Information to be Derived
Benthic infauna, grain size
Bottom samples were collected at five stations on three transects,
which ran from either 10 or 30 m to 89 m water depths.  These transects were
located (1) east of the slide area (control), (2) on the older landslide
deposits, and (3) on the 1995 landslide deposits.
The Biological Resource Division (BRD) of the USGS funded this
