Field Activity 2008-007-FA

Identifier 2008-007-FA
Alternate names T-1-08-LI
Purpose Continuous resistivity profiling and geochemical sampling.
Location Great South Bay, Manhasset Bay, Northport Harbor, Long Island, Long Island Sound, New York, Connecticut, United States, North America, North Atlantic;
Summary Collected resistivity data and geochemical samples to identify sites and rates of submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) to the coastal ocean. Data gathered included resistivity profiles, ground water and surface water geochemical data (temperature and salinity) and samples to be analyzed for nutrients, radioisotopes, and trace metals.
Comments Work is funded by multiple tasks within Coastal Groundwater Systems project. Original Center People field contained: Bratton, planning and oversight, CRP; Crusius, planning and oversight, radioisotopes; Kroeger, planning and oversight, nutrient biogeochemistry; Worley, CRP operations; Cross, CRP navigation and GIS; Green, boat driving and tech support; Baldwin, tech support; Erban, tech support; Casso, tech support; Ruppel, stationary resistivity. Project = Characterizing Sub. - South Bay, Characterizing Sub. - South Bay
