Collect bathymetric data within Muskeget Channel and surrounding area
Information to be Derived
Bathymetric maps;
Approximately 175 km of swath bathymetric data were collected within Muskeget 
Channel and adjacent areas to map the topography.

Science Strategy:
3 days of surveying are needed.  A two-week period is reserved in case of 
weather.  3 days will also be needed at the end of October.
Due to windy conditions, cruise dates were extended into the first 2 weeks of
