Equipment Used
The objective of the program is to make long-term measurements of
currents and sediment  transport in the vicinity of the proposed ocean outfall
in Massachusetts Bay. The purpose of this cruise was to recover and redeploy the
instrumented moorings. Mooring design is shown in  figure 2. Samples of bottom
sediments are collected on each cruise required to service the  instruments.
This was the second in a series of six cruises during the 2 year period of the
present Joint Funding Agreement between the Massachusetts Water Resources
Authority and  the USGS. Mooring, sample, photo.
Information to be Derived
Samples, photos, current data.
3 stations occupied.
Cruise Report exists at Woods Hole
