Area of Operations: Delmarva Peninsula, Virginia, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: September 23, 1998 to September 30, 1998
Chief scientist: Philipp Molzer
Objectives: Gravity survey.
Type of Activity:
Information to be derived:
Summary: Phil Molzer recently returned from a week of gravity surveying on and around the Delmarva peninsula, VA. Data was collected to improve the resolution of the gravity signature associated with the Chesapeake Bay bolide impact structure. Visit Wylie Poag's site to learn more about this project. The data set will be used for modeling crustal density in the area, assisting the processing of several nearby seismic profiles. The gravity meter and an Ashtech VII GPS receiver were hauled across the shallow waters seaward of the peninsula in an 18 ft. scow to numerous mud banks, etc.
