Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: A waterborne seismic reflection and side scan sonar survey performed on Pool 3, Monongahela River, Pennsylvania, is reported. This part of the geophysical study describes the river bottom features as detected with the side scan sonar and the subbottom sediment interfaces and characteristics of the bottom sediments. The interpreted near-surface sediment layers are correlated with existing borehole information. The results are intended to supplement the information form existing sediment samples by providing continuous profile line coverage of the river bottom and subsurface interfaces. Two high-resolution subbottom profiling systems along with the side scan sonar were used to collect the geophysical data.
