Completed Coastal Massachusetts Field Activities

1993-003-FA 1993-02-25 - 1993-02-26 ASTERIAS Bill Strahle
Recover remaining instruments from mooring #408.
1993-020-FA 1993-08-30 - 1993-08-30 ASTERIAS Mike Bothner
Collect 3 replicate slow cores with TV video at 4 stations in Boston Harbor that we have sampled before (1977, 1978, and 1987).
1995-041-FA 1995-08-03 - 1995-08-03 MWRA WHALER Rick Rendigs
Water sampling at selected navigational buoy sites in Boston Harbor for geochemical baseline measurements.
1996-022-FA 1996-08-07 - 1996-08-08 ASTERIAS Mike Bothner
Collect series of cores from 4 sites (sampled 3 times since 1977, most recently in 1993) to measure sedimentation and mixing rates in metals concentrations; compare changes in metals inventory from cores 1977-present. Collect 3 cores with 1 m barrels at each station; possible 2 m core from Station 8.
1999-011-FA 1999-03-18 - 1999-03-26 DELAWARE II Page Valentine
Sampling (video, photo, sediment) and sub-bottom profiling.
2000-061-FA 2000-07-09 - 2000-07-09 MARCUS HANNA Mike Bothner
The cruise objective is to collect sediment cores at 6 long-term monitoring stations within Boston Harbor. The cores will be used to determine the concentrations and inventories of heavy metals. The previous work at these stations has documented a 50% decrease in metal concentrations in surface sediments between 1977 and 1993. This sampling will check conditions just before the sewage outfall is changed from Deer Island (at the mouth of the harbor) to the new location 9 miles offshore.
2001-060-FA 2001-08-27 - 2001-08-31 CONNECTICUT Page Valentine
