Survey InvestigatorDescription
FR 05/90

B. Carter, D. Johnson (James Cook University), including other PIs Cruise FR 05/90 was undertaken to collect seismic information and piston cores from the Great Barrier Reef shelf, and slope adjacent trough in order to: provide ground-truth data for the GLORIA imagery; investigate sediment transport from shelf to basin; investigate the geo-mechanical properties of slope sediment with respect to mass-failures evident on the GLORIA mosaic and to gather data on water quality, including fluorometer and thermosalinographic measurements for use in the interpretation of reflectance from sateloscience equipment form Franklin. Survey methods included seismic profiles, piston coring, grabs, airgun and underway instrumentation. Water and sediment samples were collected for on board and laboratory analysis.
