Area of Operations: centered on Harrison Bay, shallow Beaufort Sea, Alaska, United States, North America, Arctic Ocean
Dates: August 03, 2010 to August 09, 2010
Objectives: 1) Image seafloor. 2) Map top of subsea permafrost in very near shore. 3) Survey for possible methane emissions at distal
inferred end of permafrost offshore. 4) Collect data to help constrain whether seaward limit of permafrost is 'real' or related to a lithologic change.
Type of Activity: Seismic profiling
Information to be derived: Sea floor map
Summary: Transit from Prudhoe Bay West Dock to eastern Harrison Bay; collected seismic data along lines running NE-SW and long tie lines running WNW to
ESE until weather turned bad.
