Other ID: UML-0612
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: Upper Mystic Lake, Arlington, MA, United States
Principal Investigator(s): John Pohlman
Affiliate Investigator(s): Ruben Juanes and Ben Scandella, MIT
Information Specialist(s): Michael Casso
Data Type(s): Environmental Data: Methane, Imagery: Photo, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sonar: Single Beam
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Collect methane, CO2 and meteorological data from Upper Mystic Lake to calculate air-sea methane and CO2 fluxes. Data will be acquired with the greenhouse gas flux analyzer aboard the Carolina Skiff.
Start Date: 2012-06-04
Start Port/Location: Upper Mystic Lake Dock
End Date: 2012-06-07
End Port/Location: Upper Mystic Lake Dock
Equipment Used: Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS), Digital camera, Humminbird fishfinder, GPS (wh), HYPACK
Information to be Derived: Samples and chemical analysis;
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: CRDS data on surface water methane and carbon dioxide concentrations were collected along 10+ kilometers of survey lines in the Upper Mystic Lake. Additionally, surface air methane and CO2 were measured at the end of each survey line and along a continuous transect that crossed the lake at several points and within the fore boat basin. Humminbird sonar data collected along the survey lines. Discrete samples for methane concentration analysis were collected at several locations and within the fore boat basin.
