Field Activity 2019-334-FA

Identifier 2019-334-FA -- CANCELED
Purpose Deploy multiple sensors in the estuary
Location Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Mississippi and Alabama, United States, Gulf of Mexico
Info derived Grain size, current, wave height, temperature, turbidity
Comments Deployment of underwater sensors in the Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. Project will either use NERR staff and vessel or will take USGS vessel Mako. Dives will be roughly 1 hour each in two locations (8 ft and 15 ft deep). This field activity is a companion to 2019-303-FA field activities.
