Purpose
Phase I- Complete geophysical mapping of the South Essex Sanctuary
(Gloucester to Nahant; 40 m to 10 m water depth)  Phase II- Conduct ground
validation survey of 100 target stations in the survey area.
Information to be Derived
Grain size analysis; Habitat maps; Sea Floor Map; Bathymetric Maps;
Morphology;
Summary
Phase I Geophysical Survey: 8 total survey days with Submetrix,
Knudsen, Edgetech. Lost 5 days to rebuilding stbd engine on Rafael. Data
collected: Submetrix bathymetry/backscatter, Edgetech sidescan, Knudsen seismic
reflection.  Phase II Ground Validation: Occupied 100 target stations in 3
survey days, recovered 56 sediment samples. Data collected: bottom video, bottom
stills, sediment samples (grain size). 100 Stations Occupied. 387 km continuous
data.
