Equipment Used
The overall program long-term goal of STRATAFORM
is to advance our understanding of the development of stratigraphic units and
sequences on continental shelves and upper continental slopes. In this specific
project we will obtain high quality measurements of sediment transport in the
benthic boundary layer during energetic storms and during periods of high
sediment input from coastal rivers (floods) for use in developing and
testing models which predict the emplacement and modifications to discrete
depositional units.
Information to be Derived
Correlations of sediment resuspension from the bed with energetic waves and 
currents; estimates of bottom stresses due to combined flows of waves and 
currents; time-series temperature and salinity data near the seabed.
Time series (hourly) measurements of currents, waves, temperature,
salinity, and suspended sediment in the bottom boundary layer (from 20 cm to 120
cm above the seabed).
