Equipment Used
Recover moorings, deploy small tripod, Scuba dive for
horse mussels,  collect sediment cores, deploy and recover sediment
probe for oxygen profiles and fluxes.
Information to be Derived
Times series data;Samples and Chemical Analysis;
Moorings recovered: 3(#786,788 deployed #05022 MARCUS HANA
May 18-19, 2005; 792 deployed #05025 ARGO MAINE Jun 6-8, 2005.)
Mooring deployed: 1(#805, recovered #06003 MARCUS HANA Feb 8, 2006.)
All moorings successfully recovered.  A small tripod re-deployed for
February pickup.  Cores collected from long term Mass Bay stations 3
and 2.  SCUBA divers collected Horse Mussels (Modiolus modiolus)
from rocks (not in sediment) from MWRAs station T-4 on a drumlin
south of the outfall.   On day 2, 5 cores were taken from station 8
in Boston Harbor and 1 hour was spent using the ROV with recorded
video surveying the bottom in President Roads off Deer Island
(80-100 m water depth) in search of additional mussel beds.  No
living specimens were found.  Some empty horse mussel shells suggest
that further surveying might be productive.
2 days at sea.
