Equipment Used
Shepard Meander Instrument & Sediment Trap
Exchange, Vibracore and Push Core Collection.  See postcruise for additional
appropriate information (W-3-06-MB Postcruise.doc).
Information to be Derived
Evaluate the recent history of sediment
transport through Monterey Canyon and on to Monterey Fan seaward of the
Shepard Meander. The sampling, which is an ancillary activity, is limited to
ROV dives in the vicinity of the Shepard Meander. This is a continuation of
earlier collaborative work with MBARI scientists.

(1) Station IDs reflect the Tiburon dive numbers set by MBARI.

(2) Sample numbers for the push cores are generally not consecutive but reflect permanent labels on coring and other devices that are randomly chosen before each dive, and many of the push cores are reused in later dives. USGS sample protocol could not used during dives except for the Activity ID (W-1-05-SC).
(3) Sample numbers recorded in FACS reflect only those samples that will be brought to the USGS for logging, description, and, in most cases, archiving.
Got Help? For W-3-06-MB, we would appreciate any information on -- contract, days at sea, dive count, funding, kms of navigation, national plan, NGDC Info, owner, project number, publications, scanned materials, seismic description, station count, station description, submersible, tabulated info.
