USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program

Field Activity Details for field activity 2019-308-FA

Other ID: none

Status: Completed

Organization(s): USGS, St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center

Funding Program(s): Tampa Bay Estuary Program - TBEP (GR.22.MN00.TN155.00)

Principal Investigator(s): Kimberly Yates

Affiliate Investigator(s):

Information Specialist(s): Christopher Moore

Data Type(s): Geochemical: Surveys (geochemical)

Scientific Purpose/Goals: Monitoring and assessment of an autonomous carbonate system deployed 60 miles offshore of Tampa Bay, FL. The Ocean Carbon System (OCS) site will be visited routinely, approximately monthly, for equipment maintenance/service or more frequently should instrumentation troubleshooting be required.

Vehicle(s): Ford F-350 Dually White (GSA)

Start Port/Location: St. Petersburg, Florida

End Port/Location: St. Petersburg, Florida

Start Date: 2019-02-12

End Date: 2019-02-12

Equipment Used: Ocean Carbon System (OCS)

Information to be Derived: Instrument functionality and accuracy.

Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Ultimately, data obtained from this system will be used in time series measurements of carbonate system parameters including: water temperature (°C), conductivity (siemens), pressure (dbars), salinity, pHT (pH on the total scale), carbon dioxide (ppm), dissolved oxygen (micromol/L), and photosynthetically active radiation (microEinsteins).

Staff: Mitchell Lemon

Notes: OCS version 3. This FAN will also be used for subsequent site visits.
