Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: USGS divers (Dann Blackwood and Charles Worley) recovered tripod at station LNB - release fouled. Cores collected only at Station 3. No moorings recovered/deployed at Scituate on this cruise. No benthic chambers were deployed. The minipod and subsurface moorings were recovered/deployed at Scituate on 10-29-01 from the CHRISTOPHER ANDREW. Moorings recovered: 2 (#644 and 645 both deployed FA 01023 MARCUS HANNA May 23-24, 2001). Moorings deployed: 2 (#664 and 665 both recovered FA 02026 MARCUS HANNA Feb. 5-6, 2002).
