Principal Investigator(s): Nicole Khan

Affiliate Investigator(s):

Information Specialist(s): Anastasios Stathakopoulos

Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Benchmarks, Sampling: Biology, Sampling: Geology

Scientific Purpose/Goals: To survey elevations of previously collected surface samples and cores and collect new transects of surface samples along environmental gradients to interpret Holocene sediment cores.

Vehicle(s): White Dodge Pickup - White

Start Port/Location: St Petersburg, FL

End Port/Location: St Petersburg, FL

Start Date: 2017-05-15

End Date: 2017-05-24

Equipment Used: Surface grab sampler, Peat Corer, Choke Ring Antenna, Ashtech ProFlex 800, Ashtech ProFlex 500

Information to be Derived: Foraminiferal identification, elevation data

Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Collected surface sediment samples for modern Foram identification. Collected cores to examine peat stratigraphy and 'russian' cores to peat chronology. GPS/elevation data were collected to reference position and elevation of core locations.
