Area of Operations: Cape Cod Bay, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: September 06, 2007 to September 15, 2007
Chief scientist: Walter Barnhardt
Objectives: Ground validation of geophysical mapping done in previous surveys: bottom sampling, photography, and coring.
Type of Activity: Sampling; Photography;
Information to be derived: Samples and chemical analysis; Grain size analysis; Sea floor map;
Summary: The survey occupied xx stations on the inner shelf off the South Shore coast and northern Cape Cod Bay (the areas previously surveyed with geophysics in cruises FA 06012, FA 07001, and FA 07002). Photographic data were collected at 183 stations; grab samples were collected at 128 stations. Seventeen vibracores were collected, ranging up to 4.2 m long.
