Cook Inlet Geophysical Survey and Analysis
eTrac provided an off-shore hazard survey for a pipeline route in Cook Inlet, Alaska. The work included planning, permitting, survey, data processing, and reporting activities. Multibeam, Subbottom, and sidescan sonar systems were used as well as a magnetometer system. Final products were primarily engineering and construction driven and seafloor information facilitated planning and construction of the pipeline. The off-shore portion of the pipeline is approximately 22 miles long and crossed Cook Inlet from the West Forelands to the East Forelands.
