Purpose

Information to be Derived
Sea Floor Map;Bathymetric Maps;
Summary
Completed mapping in shallow water along coast, approx from
Green Harbor-Scituate, to fill in areas not covered by 2006 Megan
Miller survey.  Collected full coverage bathymetry and backscatter
data, and closely spaced grid of subbottom profiles.  Total
trackline length = 525 km; area mapped = 57 km2; water depths range
from 4-20 m.  Nearshore area south of Green Harbor (off Duxbury
Beach) was not completed due to weather; will fill gaps during July
cruise.
Notes
Navigation technique: RTK-GPS.
Cruise was delayed 6 days by a strong nor easter. Lost several days at end of cruise due to weather. Took along two data processors on this cruise for the first time (usually only one) in order to speed up the production. New 4-stroke outboards performed well, very quiet and and lots of power. Auto-pilot seldom deviated from programmed Hypack lines. New pole mount for chirp worked great, allowed tight turns to port w/out prop damage to fish. Now, if we could just find a way to launch/recover the big 512i fish! 14 days at sea. 525 kms. of continuous data. Related web site(s): http://woodshole.er.usgs.gov/project-pages/coastal_mass/
