Type of Activity:
Information to be derived:
Summary: Approximately 25 nautical line miles (nlm) were run in both the nearshore zone and as site-specific lines over previously recorded features. A total of 14 dives were made (7 each by 2 divers) on 3 different sites. Bottom samples, descriptions and 8 mm video were collected on each of the 3 sites. On 1 site, a 1.78 m core was taken. This core was later extruded, described and subsampled.
