Field Activity Collection System (FACS) Logs

FACS logs are standardized forms used by the USGS CMGP. For more information see Click on the links below to access PDF files containing the FACS log records of the crew, equipment, operation, and an overview. Digital FACS logs were generated after the cruise 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.
