Don Reed, San Jose State University

This site from Don Reed of San Jose State University is a virtual research cruise that takes viewers on a virtual expedition to acquire and interpret a survey of the San Francisco Bay floor using high resolution seafloor mapping data. The site includes interviews, articles, maps, images, definitions, data acquisition methods, explanations and a site evaluation as the "voyage" proceeds. A student worksheet accompanies the tour of the website. There are also links available for more in-depth study of San Francisco Bay.
