Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: October 18, 2006, Bratton, Kroeger, Colman, Waite, and Lavoie installed 4 multi-level samplers (MLS) and partially install a 5th, approx. 4 m between each; October 19, Colman and Lavoie finished installation of 5th sampler started on 10/18; November 27, 2006, Kevin Kroeger and Sandy Baldwin collected samples with Colman and others for salinity, dissolved gases, nutrients, and DIC/DOC; December 7, 2006, 4 more MLS installed (one replaced a shallower one originally installed in October) for a total of 8 (transects of 6 and 2), Bratton, Green, Colman, Lavoie, 2 AmeriCorps volunteers (Wes, Katie), and Elena Colman; December 18, 2006, more sampling by Baldwin, Colman, and Elena Colman.
