Dates: July 08, 2009 to July 13, 2009
Chief scientist: Dave Twichell
Dick Poore and Lisa Osterman, USGS-St. Petersburg
Objectives: High-resolution seismics, surface sediment sampling, and vibracoring.
Type of Activity: Sampling; Seismic profiling;
Information to be derived: Stratigraphy
Grain size analysis
Summary: The cruise was divided into two parts. Chirp seismic profiles were collected on the inner shelf offshore of Apalachicola Bay during July 8-10. Seismic data were collected along approximately 93 km of tracklines. Vibracores and surface sediment samples were collected in the bay and offshore of the bay during July 11-12. Vibracores were collected at 10 stations and surface sediment samples were collected at 8 of these stations and four additional ones where vibracores were not taken.
