Principal Investigator(s): Neil Kamal Ganju
Information Specialist(s): Steven Suttles
Data Type(s): 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: Wellfleet, MA
End Port/Location: Wellfleet, MA
Start Date: 2019-08-07
End Date: 2019-08-08
Equipment Used: DGPS, GPS - Handheld, Spectra Precision SP80, Water sampler, Bottom platform
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.
