MBMS NEARSHORE STUDIES: In spite of rough seas and nasty weather the David Johnston completed 19 out of a scheduled 40 days of high-resolution seismic reflection and side-scan surveys along the nearshore coastal area in the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary between Aptos and Ano Nuevo. Roberto Anima, Andy Stevenson, Steve Eittreim, and Jim Tait (UCSC) report that they, with support from ETs Mike Boyle and Fred Payne, were able to collect excellent records that imaged the extent of submarine outcrops and subbottom features. Correlations with coastal bluff exposures were apparent. The surveys are part of a continuing program to compile a side-scan sonar mosaic of the offshore area of Monterey Bay Marine Santuary. Graduate and undergraduate students from U.C. Santa Cruz joined the cruise to observe the data collection processes. R. Anima
