Purpose
To obtain baseline measurements and support research contributing to the
development of a predictive model of Arctic bluff retreat and inundation of
barrier islands due to the a changing global climate on the North Slope of
Alaska.
Information to be Derived
Waves, currents, bathymetry, sediment and bluff characteristics, suspended 
sediment flux, salinity and temperature, and beach and bluff topography.
Notes
mooring AIN09F1T.  Recovery ID:
http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/t/tm209ar/html/t-m2-09-ar.meta.html
Shop time includes the design and construction of bottom mounts specifically
designed for the North Slope. Deployment of Trawl Resistant Bottom Mount
deployed Aug. 10-25.  TRBM to be recovered Sept. 22-25, 2009
Platforms used: Two vessels, ATVs, and by foot.
Deployment, recovery of bottom-mounted instruments, and collection of data 
pertaining to bathymetry, sediments, and bluff characteristics.
Study of Arctic bluff retreat and inundation of an ecologically sensitive 
barrier island
system due to a changing global climate.
