Submarine groundwater sampling, Great South Bay, Long Island.
Information to be Derived
Samples and chemical analysis;Grain size analysis;
Groundwater samples were collected for dissolved metals, inorganic
carbon, organic carbon, pharmaceuticals, and nutrients.  Samples were
collected from 14 onshore wells in Patchogue by USGS-WRD, 4 temporary
offshore wells and piezometers in a shore-perpendicular transect (35 total
offshore groundwater samples), 1 surface water site, and 20 temporary
onshore piezometers (12 in unsewered Patchogue and 8 in sewered
Babylon/Islip).  Eight short sediment cores (~20-120 cm) were also
collected in the Patchogue Bay area from the SCDHS barge.  SCDHS personnel
collected data along ~8-10 shore-perpendicular stationary electrical
resistivity lines near the sediment coring sites, and collected subsurface
Trident probe measurements of porewater conductivity in a transect in the
vicinity of the temporary offshore wells.  SCDHS personnel also collected
sample splits for analysis of a variety of pollutants (e.g., pesticides,
herbicides, volatile organic compounds) from low-salinity intervals in the
offshore Patchogue piezometer closest to shore.  The Stony Brook
University student (Young) also collected sample splits for various
analyses from the onshore wells sampled by USGS-WRD (Abbene).
