Equipment Used
To study the movement of sediment particles in the water column, the
accumulation of sediment particles on the seabed, and the effects that sediment
particles have on geochemical processes in the water column and seabed.
The instrumented moorings and instrumented tripod, GEOPROBE, were
recovered during this leg. These instruments had all been deployed during
AmasSeds Cruise 2 in February 1990. The mooring at site M-1 was recovered first
with all instruments except for one Datawell Waverider which apparently broke
free and drifted out of the study. All instruments were recovered from site M-3
with no complications. At site M-2 the instrumented mooring had to be dragged
for with grappling hooks because all surface buoys deployed at M-2 had broken
free. All instruments on the mooring wee recovered by dragging except for one
which was subsequently found and returned by Brazilian fishermen. The
instrumented-tripod, GEOPROBE, was recovered using a trawling net. The
instruments on the tripod were recovered undamaged and with data preserved.
