Other ID: MH29-99
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): Michael Bothner
Information Specialist(s): Frances Lightsom
Data Type(s): Time Series: Mooring (physical oceanography), Sampling: Geology, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Imagery: Photo, Environmental Data: Dissolved Oxygen
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Exchange moorings at two locations and collect sediment cores at two long-term monitoring stations. We made measurements of oxygen profiles at the sediment stations. Water samples were collected for total suspended matter measurements at the surface and bottom at Station 3.
Start Port/Location: U.S. Coast Guard Base, Boston, MA
End Port/Location: U.S. Coast Guard Base, Boston, MA
Start Date: 1999-02-10
End Date: 1999-02-11
Equipment Used: DGPS, Bottom platform, Corer - piston, Grab sampler - Van Veen , Mooring tripod, Camera- deep sea, Oxygen profiling system from Sayles
Information to be Derived: Time series data; Samples and chemical analysis; Suspended sediment concentrations;
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Divers were not needed. All moorings were recovered without incident. K. von der Heydt tested the radio modem from the ship to a tower near Marshfield. Moorings recovered: 4 (#540, 541, 542 and 543 all deployed FA 98044 MARCUS HANNA Sep. 30 - Oct. 1, 1998). Moorings deployed: 4 (#551, 552 and 553, all recovered FA 99008 MARCUS HANNA May 11-12, 1999; #554 recovered FA 99040 CHRISTOPHER ANDREW May 26, 1999).
