Equipment Used
Map and sample groundwater discharge into nearshore zone; map suspended
sediment concentration and grain size in water column; map benthic cover.
Information to be Derived
Conductivity, temperature salinity, optical backscatter, sediment
concentration and 32 sediment-grain size classes of suspended sediments, pH, and
chlorophyll in the water column. Scaled video of substrate type, coral cover,
and benthic habitats. Ra isotopes of nearshore water to derive mixing models and
quantify terrestrial groundwater discharge into near shore. _14C and _13C of
near shore waters to quantify terrestrial groundwater discharge into near shore.
DIC concentration of near shore water to quantify carbonate chemistry. DOC and
POC of near shore water to assess local carbon budget. Nutrient concentration
(nitrate, nitrite, ammonium, phosphate) of near shore water to characterize
nutrient and calculate flux.
