Equipment Used
Establish a geologic framework and baseline from which to examine
future changes offshore San Diego caused by wave erosion and transport
associated with  the predicted El Nino and examine downslope funneling and
capture  of sediment by the two canyon heads (Scripps and Rose Canyons).
Information to be Derived
Sea floor map
Day trips on the SAICHON the resulted in a sidescan-sonar digital
mosaic, bathymetric map, and seismic profiles along every line.
Navigation Techniques: Differential GPS
