Equipment Used
To evaluate the storage and transport of particle reactive, environmentally 
relevant contaminates through the Mississippi River and Atchafalaya River delta 
complexes to the near-shore Gulf of Mexico.
Collected 10 single-channel boomer seismic lines along
with 6 chirp lines in the Mississippi River Delta. Collected 5 boomer
seismic-lines along with 5 chirp lines in the Atchafalaya River Delta.
also 7 vibracore samples were taken from the Atchafalaya Delta.
