Description:
Abstract:
In 2007, the U.S. Geological Survey collected 24 vibracores within Apalachicola Bay, Florida. The vibracores were collected using a Rossfelder electric percussive (P-3) vibracore system during a cruise on the R/V Gilbert. Selection of the core sites was based on a geophysical survey that was conducted during 2005 and 2006 in collaboration with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrationís (NOAA) Coastal Services Center (CSC) and the Apalachicola Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. Available data include the vibracore data logs and photographs, select seismic-reflection profiles (from the geophysical survey), and core-derived data including: grain size analyses, radiocarbon ages, microfossil counts, and sedimentological interpretations. The long-term goal of this study is to provide maps, data, and assistance to the Apalachicola Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in their effort to monitor and understand the geology and ecology of Apalachicola Bay Estuary. These data will inform coastal managers charged with resource preservation.
Purpose:
These data are JPEG files of each vibracore summary sheets for 23 of the 24 vibracores collected by the U.S. Geological Survey during a 2007 cruise within Apalachicola Bay, Florida. These summary sheets were generated as a final record of the core content and sample analyses.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report: There are no attributes associated with these JPG images
Logical_Consistency_Report:
Core summary sheets were saved to JPEG format in order to maintain a digital record of the data. All cores summary sheets were created by the same interpreter based on the core field description sheets, and any additonal radiocarbon or grain-size data were also recorded on the summary sheet.
Completeness_Report:
All vibracores were collected from the R/V Gilbert using a Rossfelder vibracore. One vibracore was collected at each of the 23 predetermined locations, with the exception of site 18. Two cores were collected here because the first core (App07-18A) was recovered without a core catcher on the end, and several centimeters of the sample were lost. A second core was taken (App07-18B) at site 18, and both cores were processed and preserved. Summary sheets were created for 23 of the 24 vibracores. A summary sheet was not created for core 18A, because core 18B was a more complete core from the same site.

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The Differential Global Positioning System latitude and longitude for each core is recorded in the 'App07-CoreLocation' file included in this report, and these positions are assumed to be accurate within +/- 20 m.

Twenty-four vibracores were collected within Apalachicola Bay, Florida during May 2007. Vibracore sites were selected based on the identification of target areas. These target areas were chosen from the analysis of geophysical data collected during 2005 and 2006 in collaboration with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrationís (NOAA) Coastal Services Center (CSC) and the Apalachicola Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. The vibracores were collected using a Rossfelder electric percussive (P-3) vibracore system. The cores were collected in a 7.62 cm (3 in) diameter by 6.10 m (20 ft) long aluminum tube with a copper core catcher riveted to the bottom. The vibracoring rig was mounted, depolyed, and recovered on the port side of the R/V Gilbert. The ship was anchored from the bow and stern to maintain ship position as a hydraulic crane deployed and recovered the coring rig. Following recovery, the bottom of the core was capped with a plastic cap, water was drained from the top of the core barrel by drilling a hole in the aluminum tube immediately above the sediment/water interface, and the pipe was cut at the sediment/water interface. Each core was cut into one-meter sections (measuring down from the sediment/water interface) on the boat deck, the ends were capped, each section labeled, and stored on deck for transport. Core sections for all 24 vibracores were transported to the U.S. Geological Survey Florida Integrated Science Center (FISC) where the 1-meter core sections were split in half (lengthwise) in the FISC core laboratory. One half of each core section was preserved and archived in a clear plastic sleeve with the ends taped shut to minimize moisture loss. The other half, the working half, of the core was used for visual descriptions, photographs, and eventually sub-sampling for radiocarbon, microfossil, and grain-size analysis.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Final figures for 23 vibracores (core 18A was excluded) were produced after the field descriptions, core photographing, and grain-size, microfossil and age date sampling were complete. These summary sheets were created using Corel Draw (version 8) software and are expanded and polished versions of the original core field descriptions. Each core summary sheet is a stratigraphic representation of the vibracore with standardized legends representing core lithology and grain-size and age-data when available. The image filename indicates what analysis information accompanies the core summary. For example, App17_gs_age.jpg represent core App17, with grain-size information (gs) and age dates (age). Image App14.jpg only contains information associated with the core description.The grain-size information is shown to the right of the core log as mean grain size (except for core 19 which shows percent sand) and age dates in uncorrected 14C years are shown to the left of the core log.
