Other ID: MH30-99
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): Michael Bothner
Information Specialist(s): Frances Lightsom
Data Type(s): Environmental Data: Dissolved Oxygen, Imagery: Photo, Sampling: Geology, Time Series: Mooring (physical oceanography)
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Exchange moorings at two locations and collect sediment cores at two long-term monitoring stations. We will also make measurements of oxygen profiles at the sediment stations.
