Field Activity 2018-049-FA

Identifier 2018-049-FA
Purpose To collect geologic framework information from inner shelf and inlet (where possible) for coastal-change studies
Location Little Egg Inlet, New Jersey, United States, Atlantic Ocean
Summary Occupied ~70 sites over 2 days (Oct 22-23, 2018 - JD 295-296) aboard the R/V Petrel. SEABOSS with SeaViewer HD video camera and 2 GoPro cameras (one oblique down on miniSEABOSS as usual, another on arm extended out and down-facing. GoPro was time synced regularly to UTC using Camera Studio software on AckBookPro. Calibration photos were taken to ensure that GoPros and Video were synced. Navigation was DGPS from the R/V Petrel (Hemisphere Vecor VS330 (WGS 84)). Antenna aft stbd side on wheelhouse ~3 meters to the deployment point. Logging Petrel DGPS to DataBridge CF car; and into ArcMap GPS via Plugable usb to serial adapter on AckBookPro (parallels Win10) - saving 1 second point as Esri shp. Offset to the sampler deployment spot (from GPS antenna to the extended block 18 feet aft; 5 feet port). This offset is NOT accounted for in the SEABOSS position.
Info derived surficial geology, etc
Comments Funding project is LQ00-GHY3000. This is a sampling survey to compliment the geophysical survey done in May 2018. Entries for this field activity are based on entries from Field Activity 2018-001-FA
