Information to be Derived
Bathymetric maps;Time series data;
Sea floor map;
Bathymetric maps;
Field water quality parameters (salinity, temperature);
electrical resistivity
12 April 2010, drive from Falmouth to Delaware, launch boat and test gear; 13 
April 2010, collect resistivity (CRP), depth, salinity/temp, and chirp data 
around perimeter of Indian River Bay, rough weather in PM, end operations early 
in SE corner of bay; 14 April 2010, collect data on long E-W lines, equipment 
problems in AM, Holly Michael and students visit at marina around mid-day, PM 
resume CRP and salinity/temp/bathy data collection on E-W and some N-S lines, 
chirp system not operating; 15 April 2010, collect more data along N-S zigzag 
lines (no chirp), also E-W lines in shallow, SE corner of bay, and set of ~12 
closely-spaced lines in a dense box off Holts Landing State Park, load boat on 
trailer at marina and stow equipment at end of day; 16 April 2010, travel day 
back to Falmouth from Delaware

  Data quality problems with bathymetry and salinity/temp on 13 April PM and 14 
 April AM associated with placement of instruments too close to bow and chirp 
 towfish; moved astern on 15 April; CRP processed with available and interpolated 
 data for bathymetry and salinity/temp on 13-14 April; tide stage data downloaded 
 from USGS gages at Indian River Inlet (Coast Guard Station) and Oak Orchard gage 
(#01484595) upstream in Indian River
