Abstract:

Maps of sedimentary physical properties are essential to a complete understanding of processes shaping the continental shelf. We have demonstrated that measurements of electrical resistivity can provide exciting new insights into shelf structure. But there is more work to be done in tying results of electromagnetic EM studies to those of more conventional surveys such as the extensive coring efforts on the Eel River shelf high resolution seismic reflection profiling and surficial acoustic backscatter measurements. Through these efforts we can increase the amount of information extractable from an EM data set and therefore improve our understanding of sedimentary processes.
