Equipment Used
Seismic reflection-3.5KHz
50-m CRP streamer
100-m CRP streamer
radon mapping system
seismic system
Massa transducers (3.5 kH (z))
Reconnaisance-level surveying of submarine groundwater
discharge indicators in lower Potomac River Estuary and western
shore of Chesapeake Bay
Information to be Derived
Times series data;Samples and Chemical Analysis;Seismic
profiles;resistivity profiles;radon activity time series and
activity maps;continuous salinity and temperature data (surface
water and profiles);radium samples;groundwater samples
4 September, Bratton drives gear down from Woods Hole and
Crusius flies down to scout area; 5 September, Worley, Foster, Erban
arrive in Solomons, set up gear on boat, troubleshoot; 6 September,
seismics/CRP/radon mapping from mouth of Patuxent River into Potomac
River and St. Mary s River to Dennis Pt. Marina (lines #1-6), set up
RAD7 and YSI for radon time series at marina, PM Cross arrives;
September 7, surveys with all systems up Maryland shore of Potomac
mainstem and zigzag back downstream (lines # 7-19); September 8,
surveys with all systems up Part of MD shore and mostly VA shore
with final crossing back north (lines # 20-26), transit back to
Solomons with 5 mid-channel (Potomac) radium samples and YSI
profiles, demobe gear from boat; September 9, Crusius and Bratton
back to Dennis Pt. Marina in AM to collect time-series gear and four
groundwater samples, others head to airport, later Crusius to
airport and Bratton drives pickup and trailer with gear back to
Woods Hole
Navigation technique: DGPS Ashtech 2, etc..
Additional cruise on Chesapeake Eastern Shore likely in summer 2007. 6 days at sea. 200 kms. of continuous data. 5 stations occupied. Related web site(s):
Got Help? For 06018, we would appreciate any information on -- activity type, analog materials, contract, days at sea, dive count, kms of navigation, national plan, NGDC Info, owner, project number, publications, scanned materials, seismic description, station count, station description, submersible, tabulated info.
