Scientists collecting seismic and bathymetry data

Detailed Description

Scientists from the St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science center collecting seismic and bathymetry data within the nearshore waters of Cedar Island, Virginia. Outside the cabin of the R/V Sallenger, a CHIRP seismic sled is being towed using dock lines and cable, inside captain Andy Farmer navigates the vessel using pre-planned survey lines while Chelsea Stalk and principal investigator (PI) Jen Miselis monitor the seismic profile lines. Cedar Island is a part of an ongoing effort to better understand barrier island resiliency and its impacts on coastal hazards and resources.
