Information Specialist
Bill Normark
The primary goal was  to acquire an approximately 130-meter long
transect of cores across the  sediment waves in the Monterey Canyon floor at
water depths of approximately  285 meters. Processing and analysis of these
cores will be used to study the  origin of the sediment waves.
Information to be Derived
Late Holocene history of sediment transport through the upper (~285 m water
depth) Monterey Canyon
Will come later after cruise is completed
Submarine Canyon Transport Processes.

Bill Normark and Stanford graduate students. No impact on WCMG Full project name: Submarine Canyon Transport Processes and history of activity (under Turbidity currents Task of Urban Ocean)
