Information to be Derived
Samples and Chemical Analysis;
During the period 2/12/07 - 2/16/07, we collected 7 cores
from Oyster Pond, and 3 cores from Deep Pond.  Details of positions
and core lengths are recorded in files in folder  Cape Cod Cores
2007  on Michael Casso s hard drive.
Navigation technique: Hand Held GPS.
Coring on ice. Ice thickness was between 5 and 7 inches. Safety equipment included bouyant surfboard, drysuits, life jackets, ice claws, ice anchors, rope, and plywood slabs to distribute weight near an opened hole. Someone was on or close to shore to phone in a problem if the ice failed. A ice saw was purchased after this sampling trip to minimize shock to the ice while making a hole big enough to accommodate the corer. No problems were encountered. 3 days at sea.
Got Help? For 07012, we would appreciate any information on -- activity type, analog materials, contract, days at sea, dive count, funding, kms of navigation, national plan, NGDC Info, owner, platform, project number, publications, scanned materials, seismic description, station count, station description, submersible, tabulated info.
