Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Exchanged long-term moorings at Station A off Boston. Moorings deployed: 2 (#774 recovered adrift, FA 04065 CHRISTOPHER ANDREW Dec. 31, 2004; #775 recovered FA 05003 ABBIE BURGESS Feb. 5-6, 2005). Moorings recovered: 3 (#766, 767 with film, and 768, all deployed FA 04026 MARCUS HANNA May 19-20, 2004). Recovered 38 sediment trap samples. Collected 3 cores from Station 2 (sandy) and 5 cores from Station 3 (muddy).
