Field Activity 2016-327-FA

Identifier 2016-327-FA
Alternate names 16FWR05
Purpose Examine effects of sediment resuspension on Pyrodinium cysts distribution and viability.
Location Old Tampa Bay/Safety Harbor, Florida
Summary USGS scientists collected six sediment push cores from three unique sites in Old Tampa Bay, a segment of the larger Tampa Bay estuary. During field sampling, ancillary water column physical properties measurements were collected at each site.
Info derived grain size, beryllium-7 and thorium-234 activities, organic matter content
Twin Vee (Jabba Jaw)
22-ft Twin Vee This boat has a carrying capacity of up to 1500 pounds and up to 7 people and a shallow draft (9 inches empty). This boat's cat hull design results in a smoother ride in choppy water, at the expense of a slightly deeper draft. This boat is powered by two Yamaha 70hp motors.
