Area of Operations: Indian River Bay, Delaware, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: October 04, 2010 to October 08, 2010
Chief scientist: John Bratton
Holly Michael, Univ. of Delaware (not in the field); David Krantz, Univ. of Toledo (not in the field)
Objectives: Repeat CRP survey of the lines covered in 2010-006-FA using similar equipment and personnel.
Type of Activity: Continuous resistivity profiling;Continuous resistivity profiling
Information to be derived: Continuous resistivity profiling data and related surface water parameters (salinity/conductivity, temperature)
Summary: 4 Oct 2010 (Monday): Bratton and Bergeron drove from Woods Hole to Delaware, launched boat, and set up gear--too windy to survey. 5 Oct 2010: began surveying but CRP equipment problems prevented collection of any good data, returned to marina to troubleshoot and ended early with no progress. 6 Oct 2010: Joel Banaszak arrived with backup CRP gear from Univ. of Toledo; completed approximately 9 hrs of surveying (10 lines E-W and N-S). 7 Oct 2010: completed approx. 7 hrs of surveying of bay perimeter and tight grid at Holts Landing; bad weather and equipment trouble ended surveying early; most CRP data collected was corrupt upon downloading; demobilized gear and pulled boat out of the water on trailer. 8 Oct 2010: drove back to Woods Hole. After processing, most CRP data collected appeared to be of low quality or unusable; navigation, bathymetry, and water quality data were all good. Planned repeat of survey is for September or October of 2011.
