Vibracore photographs, computed tomography scans, and core-log descriptions from Anahola Valley, Kaua'i, Hawai'i

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

This portion of the data release contains information on vibracores that were collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in Anahola Valley, Kaua'i, Hawai'i in 2015. Sites were cored in order to identify potential tsunami deposits and describe wetland stratigraphy. These vibracores contain mud, peat, volcanic sands, and carbonate sands, reflecting deposition in a variety of coastal environments. PDF files describe eight (8) vibracores that were split, imaged by a line-scanner camera, scanned to generate computed tomagraphic (CT) images, and visually described. Another pdf file (Anahola_cores_legend.pdf) contains a core-log legend. A comma-delimited text file (Anahola_sand_thickness.csv) includes tabulated information on the depth and thickness of sand beds A1, A2, and A3. In addition, a shapefile (anahola_vibracores_2015.shp) provides sample locations of vibracores.
