Field Activity 2015-641-FA

Identifier 2015-641-FA -- CANCELED
Purpose To improve the scientific basis for shallow water habitat restoration to support fisheries in the San Francisco Bay Delta, in collaboration with scientists from the NRP and CA Water Science Center.
Location San Francisco Bay Delta, Little Holland Tract, California
Summary cancelled because FAN already exists
Info derived Time series of suspended sediment concentration, tidal stage, and wave attributes.
Comments 1 day for topography and bathy recon; another day or two finish topo and bathy in June. Entries for this field activity are based on entries from Field Activity 2014-655-FA; added topo and bathy equipment Time-series instruments to be deployed this summer Tim Elfers initiated this FAN for Jessie Lacy in her absence
