Information Specialist
Joanne Thede Ferreira
Purpose
To determine the mechanisms driving the exchange of sediment between subitdal 
and intertidal habitats, and to determine how  resuspension from the bed is 
affected by wetting and drying.
Information to be Derived
Flow velocities, salinity, temperature, depths, suspended sediment 
concentrations; grain sizes in suspension and on the bed, bed porosity, water 
content, and erodibility; wave characteristics.
Summary
Moorings to collect time-series data, and shipboard sampling during the 
deployment to collect calibration samples for optical measurements of suspended 
sediment concentration, and to sample bed sediment grain size and other 
characteristics.
Notes
 This activity is associated with I-D3-11-SF (recovery/redeployment of 
instruments deployed on I-D1-11-SF)
