Equipment Used
multibeam system
Survey a previously observed sand wave field northwest of
Great Ledge at slack low and slack high water to determine if these
sand waves change during the tidal cycle.
Information to be Derived
Sea Floor Map;
Two surveys of the sandwave field at the east end of Woods
Hole Passage with the multibeam system were completed.  Current
measurement was attempted, and the results were good enough to
obtain a mean velocity at flood.  No grab samples were attempted.
This trip was a good test of the new system on the Gloria
Michelle.  We found there were still kinks to work out, but the data
collected were adequate for basic assessment.
1 days at sea.
0.5 kms. of continuous data.
0 stations occupied.
Equipment types
Aanderaa Current Meter
EM3002 Multibeam system;CTD
