Scientific Purpose/Goals: Sea floor mapping of Lake Winnipesaukee working with NH WRD; invasive species mapping project.

Vehicle(s):

Start Port/Location: Moultonborough Bay, NH

End Port/Location: Moultonborough Bay, NH

Start Date: 2005-07-23

End Date: 2005-07-30

Equipment Used: Sensor - SVP, Klein 3000, EdgeTech 424 chirp sub-bottom profiler, HYPACK, SeaBOSS, SEA SWATHplus-M 234 kHz

Information to be Derived: Geologic framework of Moultonborough Bay, Lake Winnipesaukee, NH.

Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Geophysical survey was conducted within Moultonborough Bay, Lake Winnipesaukee using high-resolution sidescan-sonar, swath bathymetry, and chirp sub-bottom profiler. Sediment samples, video and bottom photographs were collected to ground truth the geophysics. These data will lay the foundation for further habitat studies within the Bay.
