Data Type(s): Sampling: Biology, Sampling: Chemistry, Sampling: Geology, Location-Elevation: Navigation
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Recover two benthic chambers in Hingham Bay and collect several diver-collected push cores. The benthic chambers were previously deployed by WHOI scientists W. Martin and J. Goudreau on 6/16/04 from the RAFAEL (HB-0604).
Start Port/Location: Hingham Harbor, MA
End Port/Location: Hingham Harbor, MA
Start Date: 2004-06-23
End Date: 2004-06-23
Equipment Used: GPS (wh), SCUBA
Information to be Derived: Samples and chemical analysis;
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Recovered 2 benthic chambers in Hingham Bay (Station 8) and collected 3 diver-collected push cores. The benthic chambers were previously deployed by WHOI scientists W. Martin and J. Goudreau on 6/16/04 from the RAFAEL (HB-0604). Core 8-3 had pre-installed fins for erosion chamber experiment. Cores 8-1 and 8-2 were shorter. All cores were retained by WHOI.

Notes: Drysuits will be necessary in the cold water. Due to shallow water depth (~20 feet), NITROX will not be needed. Original Center People field contained: Barry Irwin (boat operator), Michael Casso and Chuck Worley (divers).
