Field Activity Collection System (FACS) Logs

FACS logs are standardized forms used by the USGS CMGP. For more information see http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/programs/html/main/facs.html. Click on the links below to access PDF files containing the FACS crew, equipment, operation, and overview logs. Digital FACS logs were generated after the cruise, by A. Forde, using the handwritten logbooks and personal accounts of the crew members. Handwritten FACS logs were completed in the field by D. Wiese. All logs can be found within the logbooks folder. Single-beam and swath bathymetry systems were also used during these cruises and are referenced in the subsequent FACS logs; however, that dataset is archived separately.

To obtain information on previous, current, and future fieldwork being conducted by the St. Petersburg office, please go to http://coastal.er.usgs.gov/field-activity-schedule/. Information on field activities conducted within the CMGP nationally can be found at http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/.
