Principal Investigator(s): Christopher Smith, Kathryn Smith
Affiliate Investigator(s): Jonathan Pitchford (Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve)
Information Specialist(s): Joseph Terrano
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Benchmarks, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sampling: Geology
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Retrieve and redeploy sediment plates and sensors. Also collect elevation and positional data for marsh features.
Vehicle(s): Ford F-250 Stone Grey
Start Port/Location: Saint Petersburg, FL
End Port/Location: Moss Point, MS
Start Date: 2020-01-27
End Date: 2020-01-29
Equipment Used: Net Sedimentation Tile , Other, Grab Sampler, Push Corer, Sediment Trap, Other
Information to be Derived: Grain size, sediment deposition, shoreline positions and elevations, bulk density, loss on ignition, micro-fossils, turbidity.
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Kathryn and NERR staff (using NERR vessel) collected net sedimentation tiles and marsh sensors. Joseph, BJ, and Kyle used R/V Sallenger to go offshore to dive for ADCP sensor. Joseph was topside while BJ and Kyle were diving.
Staff: Joseph Vargas
Notes: Kathryn are collecting sediment plates, shoreline positions, and water level data with Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve staff using a NERR vessel. Sediment plates were deployed in Oct 2019 and will be collected on this trip. All marsh and estuarine sensors will be collected.
