Summary for Field Activity Number 2009-035-FA

Alternate Leg ID: G-35-09-FL

Area of Operations: Apalachicola Bay, Florida, Gulf of Mexico, United States, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: July 08, 2009 to July 13, 2009

Objectives: High-resolution seismics, surface sediment sampling, and vibracoring.

Type of Activity: Sampling
Seismic profiling

Information to be derived: Stratigraphy
Radiocarbon ages
Grain size analysis
Micropaleontology

Summary: The cruise was divided into two parts. Chirp seismic profiles were collected on the inner shelf offshore of Apalachicola Bay during July 8-10. Seismic data were collected along approximately 93 km of tracklines. Vibracores and surface sediment samples were collected in the bay and offshore of the bay during July 11-12. Vibracores were collected at 10 stations and surface sediment samples were collected at 8 of these stations and four additional ones where vibracores were not taken.
