Equipment Used
The ship will be acquiring multibeam bathymetry and
backscatter datasets to update nautical charts.  USGS participation
facilitates eventual acquisition of these datasets for geological
seafloor mapping applications.
One bathymetric survey was completed; two other surveys were
partially completed.
12 days at sea.
Data types: Multibeam bathymetry
sidescan sonar
Navigation technique: dgps
Although no USGS data were generated during this cruise,
grids and imagery will eventually be obtained when data processing
is complete.
Project Number
