Affiliate Investigator(s): Peter Collins, Woods Hole Group
Information Specialist(s): Ellyn Montgomery
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Time Series: Mooring (physical oceanography)
Scientific Purpose/Goals: set waverider buoy, recover bottom lander
Start Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
End Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
Start Date: 2016-05-20
End Date: 2016-05-20
Equipment Used: DGPS, Bottom platform
Information to be Derived: From buoy, time series of wave statistics From bottom lander, times eries of wave statistics, temperature, salinity, turbidity, pressure
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Deployed a wave rider buoy at 41-50.3829N, 070-19.7274W, recovered a bottom lander from 41-46.387N, 070-28.548W (nanopod).
Staff: Marinna Martini
Notes: For navigation:
We took one mark when the anchor for the wavebuoy was dropped, recorded by the Captain using the ship’s GPS.
We went to where the nanopod was deployed in February and the float surfaced when the acoustic release was triggered, thus the location was determined to be the same as when deployed.
