Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic,
Principal Investigator(s): Michael Bothner
Affiliate Investigator(s): Bill Martin, WHOI
Information Specialist(s): PARTNER
Data Type(s): Environmental Data: Dissolved Oxygen, Geochemical: Experiments, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Imagery: Video, Sampling: Geology
Scientific Purpose/Goals: To deploy oxygen profiler and benthic chambers and collect 6 cores from Station 7 (in Cape Cod Bay SW of Provincetown). The slow corer will be used in the gravity mode and the piston mode.

Equipment Used: Oxygen profiling system from Sayles, Benthic Chambers, GPS (wh), Video camera - deep sea, Corer - piston
Information to be Derived: Samples and chemical analysis; Grain size analysis;
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Deployed oxygen profiler and two benthic chambers, and collected 6 cores from Station 7 (in Cape Cod Bay SW of Provincetown). The slow corer was used in the gravity mode and the piston mode.
