Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): Bradford Butman
Data Type(s): Imagery: Photo, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Time Series: Mooring (physical oceanography)
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Deploy 2 tripods to monitor sediment transport, one on the southern flank of Georges Bank (#116) and one in the Baltimore Canyon Trough area (#117) on the continental shelf. Obtain cross-shelf temperature measurements to position the shelf-slope water boundary near the tripods and assist current meter data interpretation.
