Equipment Used
A 1:20,000 scale reconnaissance survey was conducted for the USGS in
the vicinity of Cape Mendocino, California, to analyze seafloor uplift caused by
the 1992 earthquake.
During the transit south to the working grounds the weather conditions,
5 to 7 m swells and 40 to 60 knot winds, prevented this survey from being
conducted. The three desired tracks were completed on the transit north with the
following conditions, 1 to 3 m swells and 5 to 15 knot winds. All data was
acquired in Universal Coordinated Time. Soundintgs were taken in meters with a
Raytheon DSF-6000N echosounder (S/N B0044N) with the following correctors
applied: static draft, settlement, and squat, sound velocity, and tides. A
velocity cast was taken on April 20 and the correctors calculated to 853 meters.
the tide correctors were figured on San Francisco for Cape Mendocino applying
the following correctors: Time High -28m, Low +01m, Height High -0.1ft, Low
0.0ft. The survey was controlled by non-differential GPS which due to dithering,
has a positional accuracy radius of 100 meters. NAD83 was the horizontal datum
used for this survey. The shoreline was transferred from an enlargement of NOS
chart 18623 10th edition, April 14, 1994 and is for orientation purposes only.
