Summary for Field Activity Number 1985-018-FA

Alternate Leg ID: 85-02

Area of Operations: Rio Bayamon to Rio Loiza, Rio Grande de Arecibo and Rio Cibuco river mouths, Puerto Rico, United States, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: June 05, 1985 to July 10, 1985

Objectives: Collect high-resolution seismic profiles at the river mouths of the Rio Grande de Arecibo and Rio Cibuco to help determine vibracoring sites for the heavy minerals study. Collect seismic profiles from Rio Bayamon to Rio Loiza nearshore areas to help identify sand deposits to be used as borrow sites for beach nourishment projects in the Metropolitan area.

Type of Activity: Seismic profiling
Sampling

Information to be derived: Grain size analysis
Sea Floor Map

Summary: High-resolution seismic profiles were obtained at the river mouths of the Rio Grande de Arecibo and Rio Cibuco. These profiles will help determine vibracoring sites for the heavy mineral study. The seismic profiles from Rio Bayamon to Rio Loiza nearshore areas will help us identify sand deposits to be used as borrow sites for beach nourishment projects in the Metropolitan area.
