Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Principal Investigator(s): Lawrence Poppe
Affiliate Investigator(s): CT-DEP
Information Specialist(s): Lawrence Poppe
Data Type(s): Biological Field Study: Experiments, Biological Field Study: Surveys, Imagery: Photo, Imagery: Video, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sampling: Biology, Sampling: Geology, Visual Identification: Species ID
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Ground truth NOAA surveys H11251, H11445, H11446, H11997, H11999 and H12013 in eastern Long Island Sound with bottom sampling and photography. Field work was focused on the sampling/photography.
Start Port/Location: Groton, CT
End Port/Location: Groton, CT
Start Date: 2009-11-09
End Date: 2009-11-11
Equipment Used: SeaBOSS, Digital camera, HYPACK
Information to be Derived: Grain size analysis; Sea floor map; Morphology;
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Video and still photographs were collected at 41 stations; samples were collected at 27 of the stations. Ground truthing of survey H11445 was completed; ground truthing of surveys H11251 and H12013 was partly completed. Cruise was originally planned for 7 days, but remnants of Hurricane Ida increased the sea state and terminated field operations.
Staff: Dann Blackwood, Barry Irwin, Katherine McMullen, Lawrence Poppe
Notes: SEABOSS used was the mini-SEABOSS. Original Center People field contained: Larry Poppe - Scientist; Kate McMullen - Field and Lab Tech; Dann Blackwood - Photographer; Barry Irwin - Boat Operator.
