Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: This cruise tested various light configurations for an underwater video mounted on WHOI Craib corer. No data are archived from this activity. The system was tested outside of Hadley's Harbor, and in Buzzards Bay. There was too much light at the Hadley's location and too much suspended material in Buzzards Bay.
