Information Specialist
Dave Zawada
Survey of benthic habitats, in particular sea grass beds, along the northern
shores of the MS barrier islands that constitute the Gulf Islands National
Seashore (GUIS; National Park Service) as part of the efforts to obtain
baseline information prior to the potential oil impacts from the Deepwater
Horizon incident.
Information to be Derived
Images of seafloor (seagrass) using ATRIS; sediment collection for grain size,
foraminifera, microbial community characterization, trace metals.
Continuous Benthic Habitat mapping of seagrass beds using the ATRIS
boat-mounted system. Areas surveyed were along the northern shores of West and
East Ship Islands and Horn Island. In addition, sediment cores (6-inch long)
were collected and frozen for microbiological studies; 50-ml centrifuge tubes
with 20 ml of bottom sediment and stained with Rose Bengal for foraminiferal
characterizations; and whirl-pak bags of bottom sediment for other geochemical
and grain size analyses.
