Field Activity 2015-034-FA

Identifier 2015-034-FA
Purpose Recover deployed instruments to collect time series data to support evaluations of sediment transport and wetland stability, which will support development of models of storm impacts on estuarine health, vulnerability of adjacent communities, and sustainability of restored and natural wetlands.
Equipment or personnel only. Data, if any, are managed under a different field activity.
Location Barnegat Bay, New Jersey, United States, Estuary
Summary Recovered all deployed instruments and platforms. Collected water samples for SSC analysis to calibrate turbidity sensors.
Info derived Currents, turbidity, water level, water temperature, suspended sediment concentration.
Comments Platforms- Rutgers 21 foot; Carolina Skiff; Vehicle- USGS Suburban. Deployment platforms used: current meter= FG lander (Fiberglass grate bottom lander) Turbidity/Temperature loggers = pole mount Entries for this field activity are based on entries from Field Activity 2015-021-FA (all time series data from recovered instruments will be associated with this FAN)
