Equipment Used
Piston core
We took a total of 25 piston cores for MBARI in three different
environments: a heavily pockmarked area off Big Sur, a feature identified as
"Smooth Ridge" in western Monterey Bay, and the head of Monterey Canyon. We
experienced the worst sea conditions of our cruises during this time and lost
about one day of work.  The remainder of the time was very successful, however,
providing plenty of sample to use in collaborative studies of sedimentology and
geochemistry. The last day of our field work was spent in Monterey Bay taking
eight box cores for Jon Kolak. Roger Lewis will be using Pb-210 methods to
determine accumulation rates, and Jon will be looking at geochemical tracers to
estimate the original source of the sediment.
Got Help? For O-3-99-MB, we would appreciate any information on -- analog materials, contract, days at sea, dive count, funding, information specialist, information to be derived, kms of navigation, national plan, NGDC Info, notes, owner, ports, project number, publications, scanned materials, seismic description, station count, station description, submersible, tabulated info.
