Principal Investigator(s): Neil Kamal Ganju
Information Specialist(s): Daniel Nowacki, Steven Suttles
Data Type(s): Environmental Data: Current, Imagery: Photo, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sampling: Chemistry, Time Series: Mooring (physical oceanography)
Scientific Purpose/Goals: To quantify critical sediment transport parameters of diverse wetland complexes within 4 NCBN parks, Cape Cod NS, Fire Island NS, Gateway NRA and Assateague Island NS in order to inform management efforts. Suspended-sediment concentration data over tidal and seasonal timescales and will directly inform and improve the predications developed as part of the marsh modeling effort for these parks.
Start Port/Location: Great South Bay, NY
End Port/Location: Great South Bay, NY
Start Date: 2018-06-26
End Date: 2018-06-28
Equipment Used: Bottom platform, Water sampler, Spectra Precision SP80, Garmin GPS 76, Digital camera, ADCP
Information to be Derived: Tides, currents, waves, water-quality parameters, and time-lapse imagery from deployed time series measurements. Water samples will be collected for suspended sediment concentration, and volatile solids. Recover all time series instruments deployed in Great South Bay as part of this study.
