Equipment Used: Other, Push corer, Gomex Core, OBS, Other, watersamples, Trimble R10
Information to be Derived: suspended sediment concentration in Bay shallows, marsh creeks, and over marsh, waves and currents in shallows, bed sediment grain size and bulk density
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Water samples were collected and analyzed for suspended sediment concentrations, sediment grabs were collected and analyzed for bulk density and grain size. Tidal creek discharge was measured. Additionally, hydrodynamic data including current velocities, pressure, temperature, salinity, were collected at various locations near the marsh edge and tidal creeks.
