Obtain water samples and cores of bottom sediment for the study of
mercury concentrations, chemical forms and deposition history in coastal
Information to be Derived
Samples and Chemical Analysis
Three excellent cores were collected in a gradient from anoxic to oxic
conditions in the bottom water.  Water samples were collected at each of
the three locations.
2 days at sea.
Data types: Other geochemical: Radio-isotopes on sediment cores by gamma 
methyl mercury and total mercury analysis of sediments and water, profiles
of water column properties.
Navigation technique: gps
Occupied 3 stations.

Ice thickness was greater than 5 inches.  Safety equipment included
buoyant surfboard, life jackets, ice claws, ice anchors, rope, and a
toboggan to distribute weight near an open hole.
