Information to be Derived
Sea Floor Map;Bathymetric Maps;
Research cruise. Collected multichannel seismic data
(watergun source), high-res subbottom (CHIRP and boomer), sidescan
sonar, and interferometric bathymetry and backscatter.
Navigation technique: dgps;RTK GPS.
Outbound travel day 22 June. First mobilization day 23 June. Return travel day 12 July. GPS reference station being surveyed in under field activity #08019, April 2008. 19 days at sea. 800 kms. of continuous data. 108NR Need the standard suite of seafloor mapping gear (sidescan, M108NR swath, 512i, boomer). Guns and related gear should be shipped to NC, M108NR and will be used during the latter part of the cruise if needed. M108NR (Re-mob might require a crane to remove one of the vans and put the M108NR compressor aboard. Date of re-mob TBD by results with boomer/512i, M108NR weather, oracular pronouncement, etc.) M108NR Submetrix should be configured to run initially with the M108NR 234s. Please bring the 117s for potential work over the shelf break M108NR (water depth 60-120 m).
Got Help? For 08001, we would appreciate any information on -- analog materials, contract, days at sea, dive count, kms of navigation, national plan, NGDC Info, owner, project number, publications, scanned materials, seismic description, station count, station description, submersible, tabulated info.
