Field Activity 2017-313-FA

Identifier 2017-313-FA
Alternate names 17SGD02
Purpose Map radon, salinity and water temperature, collect CRP, and ert data, water samples and sediment surface grabs. To look at submarine groundwater discharge.
Location Indian River Lagoon, Florida
Summary Collected geochemistry, pore/surface water samples, sediment samples and resistivity data.
Info derived Map radon, salinity and water temperature, collect CRP data, water samples and sediment surface grabs. We will also be providing support for the Davies USGS who will be deploying a fiber optic cable and temperature probes.
