Summary Information for Field Activity 2001-024-FA

Area of Operations: Massachusetts Bay, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: October 23, 2001 to October 23, 2001

Chief scientist: Mike Bothner

Objectives: Exchange moorings off Boston. Collect sediment cores and deploy oxygen profiler at Stations 2 and 3 near the Massachusetts Bay outfall. Deploy benthic chambers at Station 3. (Scituate moorings will be exchanged using the CHRISTOPHER ANDREW.)

Type of Activity: Sampling; Mooring work; Photography;

Information to be derived: Samples and chemical analysis
Suspended sediment concentrations

Summary: USGS divers (Dann Blackwood and Charles Worley) recovered tripod at station LNB - release fouled. Cores collected only at Station 3. No moorings recovered/deployed at Scituate on this cruise. No benthic chambers were deployed. The minipod and subsurface moorings were recovered/deployed at Scituate on 10-29-01 from the CHRISTOPHER ANDREW. Moorings recovered: 2 (#644 and 645 both deployed FA 01023 MARCUS HANNA May 23-24, 2001). Moorings deployed: 2 (#664 and 665 both recovered FA 02026 MARCUS HANNA Feb. 5-6, 2002).
