Objectives: We collected sediment samples using ALVIN from the Sludge Max Site in the 106 Mile Dumpsite for sewage sludge. Samples were also collected from Grassle's long-term Station 6 by box coring, and from the head of Hudson Canyon from ALVIN. This is a cooperative multidisciplinary and multi-institutional program. Five dives were completed. This cruise was part of the Ocean Exploration Initiative that NOAA is proposing for future federal funding.
