Equipment Used
boxcore
Younggrab
Smith-MacIntyregrab
Purpose
Three replicate cores will be collected at each of
the nine regional stations. Each box core will be subsampled for macrofauna,
meiofauna, and sediment grain-size. Analysis of benthic infauna samples
measurements of life-history parameters will be conducted on approximately
10 dominant species to determine the times of settlement and recruitment
as well as size-frequency distributions of populations of each species on
a seasonal basis. If juvenile cohorts are identified and followed with
time, then it should be possible to detect any impact of drilling-related
and production-related activities on individual year classes.
Notes
This is an MMS cruise.
