Description:
Abstract:
This field activity is part of the effort to map geologic substrates of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary region off Boston, Massachusetts. The overall goal is to develop high-resolution (1:25,000) interpretive maps, based on multibeam sonar data and seabed sampling, showing surficial geology and seabed sediment dynamics. This cruise was conducted in collaboration with the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, and the data collected will aid research on the ecology of fish and invertebrate species that inhabit the region. The Sanctuary's research vessel, R/V Auk, visited 19 locations on Stellwagen Bank at which a customized Van Veen grab sampler (SEABOSS) equipped with a video camera and a CTD was deployed in drift mode to collect sediment for grain-size analysis, video imagery of the seabed, and measurements of water column properties.
Purpose:
This log book provides a record of information recorded in the field.
Supplemental_Information:
Additional information regarding the field activity can be obtained from https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/fan_info.php?fan=2016-004-FA . The grain-size analyses of the sediment samples collected during this field activity are available in a separate publication (Valentine and Cross, 2019; link available from the cross-reference citation).

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The latitude and longitude of stations recorded in the log book were later adjusted to match the latitude and longitude recorded at that time in the GPS navigation file. Additionally, the entries in the log book were transcribed manually, so some errors could be associated with that process.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
These are the log books maintained during data acquisition on U.S. Geological Survey cruise 2016-004-FA. Similar information was logged at each station on the cruise.
Completeness_Report:
The single PDF file represents all the acquisition logs maintained on the cruise.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
The location information for stations was acquired from a satellite navigation receiver (Furuno Satellite Compass SC-30 GPS receiver) at two-second intervals with a horizontal accuracy of 10 m. The navigation antenna is located 5.3 m forward of the SEABed Observation and Sampling System (SEABOSS) deployment location. This offset was not accounted for in the navigation acquisition (navigation fixes represent antenna location). The entries in the log book were transcribed manually, so some errors could be associated with that process.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Water depth was determined using a Simrad ES60, 120 kHz, single beam echo-sounder using a dual frequency 120-25 kHz transducer, which detects the seabed to a depth of 800 m. Depth values were rounded to the nearest meter to account for ship motion. The entries in the log book were transcribed manually, so some errors could be associated with that process.
Lineage:
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The log books were maintained during the survey by the chief scientist. These log books contain notes and information pertaining to the seabed video, CTD data, and sediment sample acquisition. Information includes date and time of acquisition, as well as water depth, latitude, and longitude. Additional information regarding observations from the video such as seabed description and fauna are noted in the log books. The survey data were collected with the SEABOSS. See the cross-references for a description of the SEABOSS (Blackwood and Parolski, 2001; Valentine and others, 2000). The latitude and longitude of stations recorded in the log book were later adjusted to match the latitude and longitude recorded at that time in the GPS navigation file.
