Alternate Leg ID: NE-1-78
Area of Operations: Lake George, New York, United States, North America
Dates: November 26, 1978 to December 08, 1978
Objectives: Obtain piston cores and grab samples to correlate lithology with acoustic stratigraphy determined in the 1976 Lake George cruise (FA 76042 SEABISKIT); sidescan locations for orientations of gassy sediments, faults, channels, bedrock ridges, etc. seen in acoustic records; shakedown NEECHO to test, evaluate platform and equipment, and consider modifications; collect 1.5, 3.5 and 7 kHz and sidescan data in areas surveyed by FA 76042 cruise; and test OBIP in a quiet water environment.
Type of Activity: Sampling
Information to be derived: Morphology
Summary: Sidescan sonar: 14.4 km; Airgun - 5 in.: 25.4 km; Airgun - 40 in.: 11.8 km; 7 kHz: 130 km; Piston cores: 14; Van Veen grabs: 5.
