Equipment Used
StingerR8 box
GPS-enabled fathometer
resistivity streamers
Continuous resistivity profiling to map submarine
fresh-saline groundwater interface in Greenwich Bay.
Information to be Derived
Geohpysical data (CRP), navigation, point salinity measurements
May 13, Weds., Worley arrives in PM to set up gear on
boat at Norton s Marina, East Greenwich, RI; May 14, Thurs., Worley,
Bratton, King, Miller survey with 50-m CRP streamer in Greenwich Cove,
Apponaug Cove, around perimeter of Greenwich Bay, and several N-S
crossings in western half, King put off at marina at noon, VeeAnn Cross
checks AM data remotely back in Woods Hole--looks OK; May 15, same crew
(incl. King) survey open parts of Greenwich Bay with 100-m streamer,
periodic salinity measurements with YSI 30 (all 25.5-27.8 ppt), run long
W-E lines, then out mouth to Patience Island, then SW to mouth of
Potowomut Cove, then N back to Greenwich Bay, zigzagging N-S-N over
eastern half of bay, back at pier at 1530. Univ of RI PONTOON BOAT used.
2.5 days at sea.
Data types: Other geochemical
