Geologic mapping of inner shelf to 1] support management of
habitat and ocean resources, 2] clarify the post-glacial history
of sea-level change in the region, and 3] reconstruct coastal
environments and quantify rates of change over the last few thousand
Information to be Derived
Sea Floor Map;Bathymetric Maps;
We collected 100% coverage of seafloor with bathymetry
and sidescan-sonar data (total mapped area 277 km2), and
approximately 2340 km of closely spaced seismic-reflection profiles.
Cruise focused on nearshore areas in water depths of 5-50 m, mostly
inside state waters.      Intermittent problems with GPS reception
caused numerous shutdowns, especially during first 10 days of
cruise.  Cause is uncertain but we suspect jamming by radar or other
external source.  Gear snagged many lobster pots, which are VERY
thick in the survey area.  See cruise log for details.
