Field Activity 2018-358-FA

Identifier 2018-358-FA
Alternate names 18CCT09, 18CCT10, 18CCT11
Purpose Retrieve and redeploy sediment plate, collect sediment cores, and collect multibeam bathymetry along the marsh edge.
Location Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve,Mississippi and Alabama, United States, Gulf of Mexico
Summary 18CCT11- Completed all priority areas as well as some additional shore perpendicular and transit lines.
Info derived Grain size, sediment deposition, shoreline positions, bulk density, sediment stratigraphy
Comments Joseph T. and Isabelle are collecting sediment cores with GBNERR staff using their vessel (18CCT10). Julie, Alisha, and Joe V. are collecting sediment cores and estuarine grab samples using the Mako (18CCT09). Chelsea and Hunter are collecting multibeam bathymetry data on the Twin Vee (18CCT11).

Platform
Mako (SP)
17' Mako
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.
