Equipment Used
Test interaction of acoustic instruments, test interaction of instruments with 
tripod, test various sampling schemes, collect previously uncollected data off 
Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf.  National Community Sediment Transport Model.
Information to be Derived
Suspended sediment concentrations, currents, waves, orbital velocities, tides, 
shear velocities, grain size
The tripod that is to be used in the spring 2001 Grays Harbor wave refraction
                  experiment was outfitted with groups of instruments and lowered off the 
                  of the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf into the water and data were 
                  after a few sampling periods the tripod was retrieved, data were 
                  and evaluated, sampling schemes were altered and instruments changed 
        out and
                  the tripod was deployed again.  Ten sampling schemes/ instrument 
        groupings were
         tested.  Data were collected for longer time periods overnight.
                  grab samples were taken for instrument calibration and to determine grain size.
