Identifier 2004-041-FA
Alternate names NOAA H11346, H11079, and H11076
Purpose Multibeam bathymetric surveying for charting applications.
Location Quicks Hole, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic;Great Round Shoal, Masachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic;
Summary This leg was only part of the NOAA Ship THOMAS JEFFERSON's 2004 field season in Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts waters. As part of this effort, five multibeam bathymetric surveys (with ancillary sidescan sonar and CHIRP sub-bottom data) were completed. The NOAA projects identifier for Long Island Sound is OPR-B370-TJ; for southern Massachusetts it is S-B904-TJ.
Comments LIS surveys completed during 2004 include: H11255 (sheet S - 754 km multibeam), H11360 (sheet T - 1086 km), and H11361 (sheet U - 1618 km). Southern MA surveys completed during 2004 include: H11076 (Quicks Hole - 557 km) and H11079 (Great Round Shoal). Original Center People field contained: Tom O'Brien, mobilization/installation of CHIRP sub-bottom system.
