Equipment Used
To study the conditions that transport sediment back on to
the beaches near Grays Harbor, Washington. Instrumented tripod
deployment and recovery in ~ 10 -25 m water off coast of Washington.
Collection of surface sediment grab samples and CTD cast data.
Information to be Derived
Wave height, period and direction; currents; suspended-sediment  concentration; 
bed grain size; depth from instruments to seafloor; salinity, temperature and 
density of water column; sonar images of seafloor
Six instrumented tripods were deployed in summer 2001 in conjunction
with the collection of nearshore bathymetry and beach morphology data.
After approximately 1 month, the tripods were pulled,
batteries were changed, data were downloaded and
the tripods and instruments were refurbished and redeployed
for approximately another month.
Morphology and bathymetry data collection have USGS activity id w2-01-wa.
