Area of Operations: Long Island Sound, New York, Connecticut, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: November 09, 2009 to November 11, 2009
Chief scientist: Larry Poppe
Objectives: Ground truth NOAA surveys H11251, H11445, H11446, H11997, H11999 and H12013 in eastern Long Island Sound with bottom sampling and photography. Field work was focused on the sampling/photography.
Type of Activity: Sampling; Photography;
Information to be derived: Grain size analysis; Sea floor map; Morphology;
Summary: Video and still photographs were collected at 41 stations; samples were collected at 27 of the stations. Ground truthing of survey H11445 was completed; ground truthing of surveys H11251 and H12013 was partly completed. Cruise was originally planned for 7 days, but remnants of Hurricane Ida increased the sea state and terminated field operations.
