Equipment Used
Augering system
Objective is to auger 4 wells near the shore line at the north end of
Oyster Pond.  At a future date, water from these wells will be sampled and
analyzed for total mercury, methyl mercury, nutrients and other
constituents.  Flow rates and direction will be measured using an in situ
flow meter.
Information to be Derived
Samples and chemical analysis;This field operation was designed to
auger 4 shallow wells for future sampling of ground water entering Oyster
Pond. Chemical analysis of ground water will be performed on future
4 wells were augered around the north basin of Oyster Pond
Toxic Supp. of Biogeochem. Cycle.
 Days at Sea: 1
