Sediment samples from Palos Verdes for size analysis, in conjunction
with USGS Reston (Eganhouse) chemical sampling, funded by US EPA.
Information to be Derived
Grain size analysis;
WH group arrive San Diego Tues 20 April 2010; mob ship at Scripps
Nimitz Marine Facility. Delay one day for weather, depart Scripps 1700 PDT
22 April. Arrive onsite 0600 PDT 23 April; Grab sample until noon;
Eganhouse box core until midnight; grab sample until noon on 24 April; box
core and CTD at 8C, 6C, and 3C on shelf until 1800; transit to San Pedro
Channel; CTD and box core until 2200 PDT; transit back to port; arrive
Scripps Marfac at 0845 PDT Sunday 25 April 2010. Unload ship and travel
Days at Sea: 4
  Navigation technique: gps;Ship's GPS and USGS-WCMG Yo-Nav system. 
Post-processing to a)
compare locations from two systems and b) adjust for heading and distance
from GPS antennae to fantail.
