Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Funding Program(s): Cross-Shore and Inlets (CSI) Processes Project (LQ00GUB)
Principal Investigator(s): John Warner
Information Specialist(s): Steven Suttles
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sampling: Geology, Time Series: Mooring (physical oceanography)
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Measure cross-shore sediment transport processes in the presence of an inlet. Focus of this study will be in the nearshore just offshore of the surfzone.
Start Port/Location: Savannah, GA
End Port/Location: Savannah, GA
Start Date: 2018-01-18
End Date: 2018-01-26
Equipment Used: GPS - Handheld, Shipek grab, Bottom platform
Information to be Derived: Water velocities, pressure, waves, seabed change, turbidity, temperature, conductivity, wind speed, wind direction, atmospheric pressure, and sediment grain size.
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Successfully deployed 2 bottom landing quadpod frames, and 2 surface buoys at Matanzas Inlet, FL on 1/24/2018 from the R/V Savannah. Also collected 6 sediment samples for grain size analysis.
