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
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: Wellfleet, MA
End Port/Location: Wellfleet, MA
Start Date: 2019-06-19
End Date: 2019-06-21
Equipment Used: DGPS, Bottom platform, Water sampler, GPS - Handheld, Spectra Precision SP80
Information to be Derived: Deployment of time series instruments to measure water velocity, water quality, water level, and seabed change. Collect water samples for laboratory analysis of suspended sediment concentration (SSC) and organic content (LOI) for calibration of time series optical turbidity measurements.
