Objectives: Deploy EuroSTRATAFORM tripods (moorings #701, 702 and 703); assist others with seabed and water column sampling; USGS thermistors deployed by Cacchione and Puig (mooring #700).
Type of Activity: Mooring work;
Information to be derived: Time series data; Grain size analysis; Suspended sediment concentrations;
Summary: Heavy fishing pressure - extra guard buoys. Leg 3 moorings deployed: 3 (#701, 702 and 703 all recovered FA 03011 SEWARD JOHNSON Feb. 11-22, 2003). Cruise Legs 1, 2 and 3 Summary: 24 Oct. - loaded ship in Ravenna. 25-28 Oct. - Leg 1a (UW, ICM, OSU, IGM), 2 tripods, 1 mooring and 6 guard buoys were deployed near Po and Pescara; seabed coring and water column profiling occurred at night. 28 Oct. - 4 Nov. - Leg 1b (UW, IGM, OSU, ICM), seabed coring and water column profiling extended from Gargano to Po. 5-7 Nov. - Leg 2 (WHOI, IGM, ICM, UW), 4 tripods and 6 guard buoys were deployed near the Po and Ravenna; water column profiling occurred at night. 7-13 Nov. - Leg 3 (USGS, IGM, Dalhousie, WHOI, ICM), 3 tripods and 4 guard buoys were deployed near the Chienti; water-column profiling extended from Gargano to Po. 14 Nov. - unloaded ship in Ravenna.
