Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Collected surface water samples in W. Falmouth Harbor for analysis of nutrients, dissolved greenhouse gases and radon. Dissolved gases and radon samples were analyzed immediately. Nutrient samples were given to WHOI for analysis. Continuous discharge, nitrate, depth, temperature and salinity measurements were recorded at Mashapaquit Creek. Continuous radon, salinity and temperature measurements were recorded from a fixed raft in W. Falmouth Harbor.
