Equipment Used
Seepage meters
To estimate groundwater flux to West
Falmouth Harbor using primarily radon and radium
as radioisotopic tracers of ground water.
Information to be Derived
radioisotopic tracers
Seepage meters were used in various
parts of West Falmouth Harbor to produce direct
estimates of discharge across the sediment-water
interface.  On June 21th, a set of 6 were
positioned in the intertidal zone, perpendicular
to the shoreline, opposite the Chappaquoit Beach
parking lot (41.59882deg. N, -70.6462deg. 2W).  Every
hour, for six hours (one tidal cycle), seepage
bags were removed, and the salinity and volume
of seepage was measured.  On June 27 and 28, the
seepage meters were repositioned as follows: one
set of 5 in the intertidal zone of Snug Harbor,
a northeastern cove (41.60703deg -70.63656deg W),
and another set of 5 in the intertidal zone on
the south side of the public landing
(41.60368deg N, -70.64008deg W).  On the 27th, the
meters were lined up parallel to the shoreline,
and on the 28th they were laid out perpendicular
to it.  On both days, 6 sets of measurements
were made over a six-hour period at both
