Equipment Used
Collect measurements of currents, waves and suspended sediment in coral
reef environments using both tripod and backpacked mounted instrument packages
to assist in determining physical constraints on coral distribution.
Information to be Derived
Current speed and direction, suspended sediment concentration,
salinity, wave height and period.
Maui instrument tripod (see A302HW) will be recovered from
location using the vessel Alyce C.  Data from the previous deployment
will be downloaded and the instruments will be refurbished at the Maui
Ocean Center. The instrument will be redeployed at the same location for
further measurements. An additional instrument package designed to
collect the same measurements will be deployed in-shore from the
current tripod location.
This activity was given two IDs: one for the data gathered on the
vessel Alyce C (A302HW), and another for the backpack mounted instrument work on
the Molokai reef flat (AL02HW).
Data exists on Makai/ots/Hawaii/Molokai
