Summary for Field Activity Number 1992-019-FA

Alternate Leg ID: LEGS 2-8-92; 92-8

Area of Operations: offshore Lorain and Vermilion, Ohio, Lake Erie, Great Lakes, United States, North America

Dates: August 14, 1992 to August 23, 1992

Objectives: To test feasibility of operating sidescan sonar from a small (22 ft) vessel in the very nearshore zone of Lake Erie and to ground truth via diving unique bottom features observed on previous sidescan sonar records.

Type of Activity:

Information to be derived:

Summary: Approximately 25 nautical line miles (nlm) were run in both the nearshore zone and as site-specific lines over previously recorded features. A total of 14 dives were made (7 each by 2 divers) on 3 different sites. Bottom samples, descriptions and 8mm video were collected on each of the 3 sites. On 1 site, a 1.78 m core was taken. This core was later extruded, described and subsampled.
