Other ID: OC406-2

Status: Completed

Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center

Funding Program(s):

Location: Golfe du Lyon, France, Mediterranean Sea, Europe;

Principal Investigator(s): Christopher Sherwood

Affiliate Investigator(s): Chuck Nittrouer, University of Washington

Information Specialist(s):

Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Environmental Data: CTD, Environmental Data: Temperature, Time Series: Mooring (physical oceanography), Environmental Data: Current

Scientific Purpose/Goals: Deploy bottom tripod and guard buoys for EuroSTRATAFORM experiment.

Vehicle(s):

Start Date: 2004-09-23

Start Port/Location: Port la Nouvelle, France

End Date: 2004-10-01

End Port/Location: Port la Nouvelle, France

Equipment Used: GPS (wh), Temperature and salinity, Pressure, Turbidity, Current, ADCP

Information to be Derived:

Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Extensive Chirp subottom lines collected by Mike Field. Tripods deployed for Spanish and Univ. of Washington co-investigators. Problems with French clearance meant USGS tripod was not deployed and returned to U.S. on OCEANUS.
