Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: This was cruise #35 for this program. The subsurface mooring at Scituate did not come up. One release was dead, the other talked but would not release. One NOPP tripod at Scituate also would not come up. Plans for diving from the CHRISTOPHER ANDREW are underway. Moorings recovered: 5 (#630, 631, 632 and 634, all deployed FA 00004 MARCUS HANNA Sep. 26-28, 2000; #636 deployed FA 00085 CHRISTOPHER ANDREW Nov. 14, 2000). Moorings deployed: 4 (#637, 638 and 639, all recovered FA 01023 MARCUS HANNA May 23-24, 2001; #640 recovered FA 01061 CHRISTOPHER ANDREW Jun. 20, 2001).
