Equipment Used
Cruise R1-01-WA of the NOAA ship Rainier was
a joint cruise of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to investigate how the
three major deltas in southern Puget Sound faired during the
magnitude 6.8 Nisqually earthquake of February 28, 2001.
Information to be Derived
Collected high-resolution bathymetry of
the Duwamish River Delta,
the Puyallup River Delta, and
the Nisqually River Delta.
