Dates: June 05, 1985 to July 10, 1985

Chief scientist: Rafael Rodriguez

Objectives: Collect high-resolution seismic profiles at the river mouths of the Rio Grande de Arecibo and Rio Cibuco to help determine vibracoring sites for the heavy minerals study. Collect seismic profiles from Rio Bayamon to Rio Loiza nearshore areas to help identify sand deposits to be used as borrow sites for beach nourishment projects in the Metropolitan area.

Type of Activity: Seismic profiling; Sampling;

Information to be derived: Grain size analysis; Sea floor map;

Summary: High-resolution seismic profiles were obtained at the river mouths of the Rio Grande de Arecibo and Rio Cibuco. These profiles will help determine vibracoring sites for the heavy minerals study. The seismic profiles from Rio Bayamon to Rio Loiza nearshore areas will help us identify sand deposits to be used as borrow sites for beach nourishment projects in the Metropolitan area.
