Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: Hanalei River, Hanalei Bay, Kauai, Hawaii, United States, North America, North Pacific;
Principal Investigator(s): Michael Bothner
Affiliate Investigator(s): Richard Reynolds - WRD-Denver
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sampling: Geology, Environmental Data: Turbidity
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Recover Honjo time-series traps and OBSes deployed early June 2006. Diver-collect cores using the slide hammer and water samples at sites in Hanalei Bay. Collect grab samples from the Hanalei River using kayaks and snorkling. Collect soil samples within the rivers watershed. Collect one sample of suspended matter from the river while it was at a modest flood stage. All samples were collected for analysis of 137Cs, 7Be, 210Pb, and magnetic properties.

Equipment Used: DGPS, Sediment traps, Optical Backscatter, Slide hammer corer
Information to be Derived: Samples and chemical analysis;
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Two time-series traps and about 6 tube traps recovered. 9 sediment cores collected and cut by Amy Draut. Bothner and Rich Reynolds collected upland sediment (soil) samples at 16 locations within the Hanalei watershed. Samples analyzed in USGS Menlo Park, Woods Hole, Denver and various other laboraties.
