John Bratton Chief Scientist
Joel Banaszak Univ. of Toledo (graduate student)
Equipment Used
SuperSting box and stream (ers)
Repeat CRP survey of the lines covered in 2010-006-FA using similar equipment 
and personnel.
Information to be Derived
Bathymetric maps;Continuous resistivity profiling data and related surface water 
parameters (salinity/conductivity, temperature)
4 Oct 2010 (Monday): Bratton and Bergeron drove from Woods Hole to Delaware, 
launched boat, and set up gear--too windy to survey.  5 Oct 2010: began 
surveying but CRP equipment problems prevented collection of any good data, 
returned to marina to troubleshoot and ended early with no progress.  6 Oct 
2010: Joel Banaszak arrived with backup CRP gear from Univ. of Toledo; completed 
approximately 9 hrs of surveying (10 lines E-W and N-S).  7 Oct 2010: completed 
approx. 7 hrs of surveying of bay perimeter and tight grid at Holts Landing; bad 
weather and eqpt trouble ended surveying early; most CRP data collected was 
corrupt upon downloading; demobilized gear and pulled boat out of the water on 
trailer. 8 Oct 2010: drove back to Woods Hole.  After processing, most CRP data 
collected appeared to be of low quality or unusable; navigation, bathymetry, and 
water quality data were all good.  Planned repeat of survey is for September or 
October of 2011.
