ID F-1-09-SF
Abstract United States Geological Survey, Pacific Science Center. Data of field activity F-1-09-SF in South San Francisco Bay from 02/23/2009 to 03/17/2009
Organization United States Geological Survey, Pacific Science Center
Project/Theme Shoal-channel sediment exchange
Platform Frontier
Area of Operation South San Francisco Bay, San Francisco Bay, CA
Bounding Coordinates
-123.25000    -121.75000
Ports LEAVE Oyster Point
ARRIVE Oyster Point
Dates 02/23/2009 (JD 054) to 03/17/2009 (JD 076)
Analog Materials No analog holdings.
Information Specialist
Jessie Lacy
Investigate mechanisms of transport of sediment from shoals to channel, and
resuspension response of cohesive sediments to wind waves.
Information to be Derived
Current speed and direction, tidal stage, wave properties, suspended sediment
concentration, salinity, bed sediment grain size.
Moorings to collect time-series data, and shipboard surveying and sampling
during the deployment to further characterize spatial variability in currents,
to collect calibration samples for optical measurements of suspended sediment
concentration, and to sample bed sediment grain size.
Collaboration with UC Berkeley.
Platform used: Retriever (for deployment and retrieval), Frontier (for surveying 
and sampling).
