      Operational Plans



      The following plans can only be considered a guide as to how the

      to predict weather, operations, scheduling problems and equipment

      failures:



      a)  Benthic Coring/Side-Scan Sonar/CHIRP/Uniboom:

      Benthic cores will be taken in water depth not exceeding 300

      meters with a box corer.  Core samples will be analyzed and

      stored.  At each coring site, a SeaCats cast using the

      McArthur's SeaCats is requested.



      A sub-surface profiler fish, the "CHIRP," will be towed before

      and during coring operations.   At other times, the CHIRP will

      be used exclusive of the Coring operations.  (A Uniboom may be

      aboard during parts of the cruise as a backup to the CHIRP.



      Side scan surveys will be conducted by USGS personnel.



      One of the analysis performed will be with a Gamma-ray

      Attenuation Porosity Evaluator (GRAPE), which uses a Cs-137

      gamma-ray source.  The personnel bringing this equipment aboard

      will provide a copy of his/her NRC permit, and the associated

      safety protocol and precautions.  The NRC permit holder will be

      soley responsible for the safe operation and storage of the

      GRAPE device.



      b)  Benthic Organisms:

      Working in conjunction with the coring project above,

      biologists from UCSC will be on board to opportunistically

      sample organisms that come to the surface in the cores.



      c)  ROV:

      An ROV from NASA-Ames will be used for stereo video transects

      over the tops and sides of 3-6 offshore pinnacles along the Big

      Sur coast. These will provide baseline data on biodiversity,

      distributions and abundances of larger invertebrates, algae and

      rockfishes.  The ROV has a 340m tether and is controlled from

      the ship. Two pinnacles will be examined on each of three days.

      The ROV data will also be used to select dive sites for the

      second leg.



      d)  SCUBA Diving:

      With data from the ROV dives as a guide, the six offshore

      pinnacles between Pt. Pinos and Big Creek will be surveyed for

      biodiversity, using photography and collection/abundance

      measurements of organisms.  Dives will be between depths of

      30-100'.  We estimate 6 dives per pinnacle (site), for a total

      of 36 dives for the project.  A dive plan approved by the

      Director of the NOAA Diving Program will be provided to the

      ship before any research dives are conducted.  The dive plan

      will include the names of all potential divers.  Ship divers

      may be asked to participate in these dives.



      e)  Weather:

      Three 24-hour periods are required to sample diurnal cycles in

      the near coastal winds.  Sampling consists of surface

      meteorological observations and Rawinsonde launches at

      intervals of 1-3 hours.  Prior to ship departure, scientists

      will mount sensors on the ship at locations relatively free

      from superstructure.  A drifting buoy may be launched as part

      of this project.  During the second leg, Rowinsonde launches

      will also be made as time permits.



      f)  Plankton Study:

      Plankton trawls will be conducted opportunistically.  The

      plankton nets can be hand operated, but easier from a small

      winch.  They consist of metal rings 0,5 or 1.0 meters in

      diameter plus a 2-meter long mesh bag.



      g)  Deep-Sea Current Meter:

      This work will consist of:

      1)  Acoustically communicating with the current meter at

      36.45N, 122.63W and sending its release command with an

      over-the-side transducer,

      2)  Picking up the current meter string upon location at the

      surface,

      3)  Deploying a replacement current meter string to be brought

      aboard,

      4)  Survey-in and communicate with the current meter, so that

      we are assured of successful functioning.

      The mooring is in about 3200 m of water.  The mooring anchor

      will stay on the bottom and the mooring will float to the

      surface sans anchor.  There is only about 50 m of mooring cable

      which can be faked on the deck.  The recovery will require use

      of the deck capstan to pull the mooring up over the A-frame

      from the surface.



      h)  Bird Surveys:

      Systematic observations of the distributions, abundances,

      behavior and correlated environmental conditions will be made

      opportunistically during daylight hours, using personnal

      binoculars as well as the ship's 25x150 instrument mounted on

      the flying bridge.

      Notes from USGS Bulletin

      Brian Edwards, Rob Kayen, and others from USGS, on Monday completed a

      marathon box-coring program on the Monterey Bay Sanctuary shelf, collecting

      a total of 108 box cores.  Brian and Hank Chezar continued on NOAA's ship

      McArthur for a several-day program to biologically explore the "Pinnicles"

      area, southwest of Monterey, with a new ROV of NASA's, where they hope to

      help NASA and ourselves learn of the utility of their new ROV, with an eye

      to future use.  Jim Gardner, one of the architects of this sampling and ROV

      program, looked on from the shoreline (or from his porch in Montara),

      domiciled for the week with homemaker duties.



      MBNMS Sampling Begins:  The Monterey Bay National Marine

      Sanctuary (MBNMS) Project recently completed 9+ days of bottom

      sampling on the continental shelf between the Golden Gate and

      Carmel and 3 days of ROV work on pinnacles off the Pt. Sur coast.

      During the sampling work, we occupied 108 stations as part of a

      cooperative effort between BUSGS, EPA, NOAA, Calif. Dept. Fish &

      Game (CDFG), and the UCSC biology department.  We sited sampling

      locations in a randomly located statistical pattern developed in

      conjunction with EPA's EMAP design criteria.  Box core samples were

      collected for sedimentological (BUSGS), pollution (BUSGS & CDFG), and

      macro- and micro-biological (USGS & UCSC) studies.  As appropriate,

      box cores were sub-cored with the Kayen subsampling device and

      sub-cores were analyzed on-board with the Schultheiss Whole-core

      Logging System.  All other analyses will be completed in shore-

      based laboratories.  In addition, we collected CHIRP high-resolution

      seismic-reflection profiles between sample sites as well as in

      three small surveys off the San Lorenzo, Pajaro, and Salinas Rivers

      in an effort to map recent flood deposits.  We recovered distinct, but

      thin flood layer deposits (very soupy, highly oxidized muds) three to

      five miles offshore of the river mouths (< 0.5 cm thick off the San

      Lorenzo, and about 2 cm thick off the Pajaro and Salinas rivers).

      These deposits were too thin to be resolved by the CHIRP system.

      NOAA provided the free ship-time on their "Class III" 175-foot-long

      McARTHUR and organized a press conference and dignitary walk-

      through of the McARTHUR at the end of the sampling leg.



      We coordinated the ROV work between NASA and the UCSC biologists

      as preparation for UCSC diver surveys of pinnacles off the Pt. Sur

      coast.  NASA's interest in this effort was 1) to use their small 250

      pound vehicle in open ocean conditions and 2) to explore the

      potential for future cooperative research with BUSGS scientists.  The

      NASA ROV vehicle lacks on-board navigation - a significant

      operational limitation.  The vehicle, however, is small,

      maneuverable, has excellent video resolution, and can be used from

      small boats with 110 VAC (both 30 amp and 20 amp) circuits.  Dual

      forward-looking cameras with pan-and-tilt capability allow 3-D

      viewing, an arguable plus for driving the vehicle but fun when using

      the "virtual reality" helmet.  The operator can select either forward-

      looking or downward-looking images for tape recording.  The 1000-

      foot-long tether produced significant drag in currents and required

      anchoring McARTHUR at each station; hence limiting our operational

      depth to about 45 meters.  In all, the ROV has potential given

      appropriate project needs.



      Our thanks to MARFAC for squeezing this operation into their very

      busy April schedule.  Amazing how they continually juggle, address,

      and meet competing needs for personnel and equipment.  Mobilizing

      in San Francisco and demobilizing in Monterey made their work that

      much more difficult.  Larry Kooker and Walt Olson provided their

      usual stellar service.  Rob Kayen filled in for Jim Gardner at the last

      minute - Jim owes Rob big-time!  My thanks also to Mike Torresan,

      Peter Dartnell, Fran Hostettler, Kaye Kinoshita, and Leda Beth Gray.

      Thanks, Brian.
