Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Funding Program(s): Estuarine Processes, Hazards, and Ecosystems (LQ00G3S)
Principal Investigator(s): Neil Kamal Ganju
Information Specialist(s): Steven Suttles
Data Type(s): Time Series: Mooring (physical oceanography), Sampling: Chemistry, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Environmental Data: Current, Environmental Data: CTD
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Evaluate sediment dynamics and sediment fluxes in Grand Bay estuary system over tidal and seasonal timescales using long-term instrumented mooring deployments and tidal cycle surveys.
Start Port/Location: Pascagoula, MS
End Port/Location: Pascagoula, MS
Start Date: 2016-08-01
End Date: 2016-08-10
Equipment Used: Bottom platform, Van Dorn bottle, Garmin GPS 76, ADCP, CTD
Information to be Derived: Currents, waves, suspended sediment concentrations (SSC), temperature, salinity, Dissolved Oxygen, Chla, and dissolved organic matter (fDom).
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Deploy time series moorings to collect pressure, currents, wave, and environmental data. Conduct CTD surveys to measure spatial patterns of physical parameters (temperature, conductivity, turbidity, and dissolved oxygen).Collect water samples for suspended sediment concentration and organic content analysis.
