Andrew Shepard Chief Scientist, NOAA/NURC, Wilmington, NC
Leslie Sautter Coll. of Charleston - sed sample
Equipment Used
Characterization and biological studies of Oculina deep water coral
habitat, using ROV, sediment grab, and listening devices.  This is a NOAA cruise
on a NASA ship.  No USGS participants were on board, but sediment grab samples
were taken and shipped to K. Scanlon.
Information to be Derived
Grain size analysis; Habitat maps.
Because of ship problems, the operation was switched from R/V Liberty
Star to R/V Freedom Star half way through the cruise.  39 sediment grab samples
were collected.
