Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Extra cores collected at Station 3 for Bill Martin's team for processing at the Coast Guard dock. Problem with bottom sealing mechanism (cheese slicer) on HDC corer, especially at Station 2. Successfully deployed both WHOI benthic chambers at Station 3 using mini-camera setup. Moorings deployed: 6 (#644 and 645 both recovered FA 01024 MARCUS HANNA Oct. 23, 2001; #646 and 647 recovered FA 01080 CHRISTOPHER ANDREW Oct. 26-30, 2001; #648 recovered FA 01061 CHRISOPHER ANDREW Jun. 20, 2001; #649 recovered FA 01068 CHRISTPHER ANDREW Aug. 16, 2001, then redeployed and recovered FA 01085 CHRISTOPHER ANDREW Dec. 5, 2001).
