Data Type(s): Environmental Data: CTD, Environmental Data: Temperature, Geochemical: Surveys
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Sampling multi-level groundwater samplers in shoreline transects on north shore of Salt Pond for geochemical parameters, collection of DOC/DIC and N2/Ar samples.
Start Date: 2007-04-26
Start Port/Location: Salt Pond, Eastham, MA
End Date: 2007-04-30
End Port/Location: Salt Pond, Eastham, MA
Equipment Used: Temperature and salinity, Submersible pumps
Information to be Derived: Samples and chemical analysis;
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: We collected in the range of 100 groundwater samples at the land/sea interface. Colman (WRD) had nutrient analyses conducted. Our group sent DOC/DIC samples to Univ. California, Davis Stable Isotope Facility. In addition, we analyzed N2 and Ar gas concentrations by membrane inlet mass spectrometry.
