Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Drifter data submitted to FAD 1/25/2017 During four days, approximately 100 oceanographic drifter deployments were conducted at various times of date and various points tidal stages. Four bottom mounted oceanographic instrument packages were deployed before these deployments to record concurrent in situ measurements. Water sampling was conducted to analyze water quality. Surface CTD tows were conducted to maps areas of potential submarine groundwater discharge. Groundwater resistivity surveys were conducted along the beach front to determine locations of groundwater discharge.
