Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Collected resistivity data and geochemical samples to identify sites and rates of submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) to the coastal ocean. Data gathered included resistivity profiles, ground water and surface water geochemical data (temperature and salinity) and samples to be analyzed for nutrients, radioisotopes, and trace metals.
