Equipment Used
Map seafloor facies and habitats prior to removal of Elwha River dams.
Information to be Derived
Surficial geology, bathymetry, grain size, and benthic habitat.
4 days spent sonar mapping from 5 to 25 m water depths off the mouth of
the Elwha river and east.  3 days spent video groundtruthing in area mapped with
sonar.  1 day spent with bottom macro camera in sandy areas for digital grain
size analysis, with grab sampling for calibration of digital grain sizing
program.  5 bad weather days.  Sonar bathy and backscatter data, processed in
the field.  Digital video tapes.  Digital macro photos.  Bottom grab samples.
