Field Activity 10SSF01

Identifier 10SSF01
Purpose Further understand surface and subsurface geology of Florida Middle Grounds. Document pre-oil spill benthic habitat and collect water column samples for subsequent analyses.
Location Gulf of Mexico
Summary Rotary core drilling to collect rocks. Picture documentation of benthic cover. Water collected for analyses.
Info derived C14 dating.
Comments Shop Time: Jordan Sanford helped with pre-cruise preparation of drilling gear. Additional platforms: Zodiac, M/V Spree. Additional equipment: Rotary drill, fluorometer, water sampling equipment.
