Objectives: Coring ops.
Type of Activity: Sampling;
Information to be derived: 14C dates
Summary: The objective of this coring cruise was to investigate in detail the stratigraphy and age of several significant slope failures along the continental slope and rise south of Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Twenty-three piston cores were collected (~110 m of core). This project is a collaborative effort between the URI Department of Ocean Engineering and the USGS Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center.
