Area of Operations: Hanalei River, Hanalei Bay, Kauai, Hawaii, United States, North America, North Pacific
Dates: September 06, 2006 to September 15, 2006
Chief scientist: Mike Bothner
Richard Reynolds - WRD-Denver
Objectives: Recover Honjo time-series traps and OBSes deployed early June 2006. Diver-collect cores using the slide hammer and water samples at sites in Hanalei Bay. Collect grab samples from the Hanalei River using kayaks and snorkling. Collect soil samples within the rivers watershed. Collect one sample of suspended matter from the river while it was at a modest flood stage. All samples were collected for analysis of 137Cs, 7Be, 210Pb, and magnetic properties.
Type of Activity: Sampling;
Information to be derived: Samples and chemical analysis;
Summary: Two time-series traps and about 6 tube traps recovered. 9 sediment cores collected and cut by Amy Draut. Bothner and Rich Reynolds collected upland sediment (soil) samples at 16 locations within the Hanalei watershed. Samples analyzed in USGS Menlo Park, Woods Hole, Denver and various other laboraties.
