Identifier 2016-358-FA
Alternate names 16CCT07
Purpose To deploy sediment tracers and sediment traps at erosion monitoring sites within Grand Bay marshes.
Location Grand Bay, MS
Summary Eight marsh sediment cores were collected with elevation data. Sedimentation plates were deployed. Four water level loggers were deployed. Two NTUs, one dwave, and one birdcam were also deployed.
Info derived Marsh surface elevation, water level readings
Twin Vee (Jabba Jaw)
22-ft Twin Vee This boat has a carrying capacity of up to 1500 pounds and up to 7 people and a shallow draft (9 inches empty). This boat's cat hull design results in a smoother ride in choppy water, at the expense of a slightly deeper draft. This boat is powered by two Yamaha 70hp motors.
