Equipment Used
Collect 6 sediment cores, and bottom water from Hingham
Bay, station 8
Information to be Derived
Samples and Chemical Analysis;
A surface marker was placed on the sampling site and served
as a useful physical reference for deployment of the camera and
sampling gear. A few minutes of video of the sea floor at station 8
were collected to confirm the absence of biological mats or
disturbance from anchor, lobster pots, etc.  The bottom looked ideal
for sampling. Six good cores were collected.  Bottom water was also
collected for TSS, oxygen, and for the erosion and incubation
Navigation technique: GPS.
The TIOGA met us in Hewitts cove at 0930 hrs after travelling from Woods Hole that morning. We were back at the dock with all samples about 1300 and back at the lab in Woods Hole at 1505. The dive took place just after high tide. Currents on the ebb at this site were very weak, somewhat of a disadvantage for diver visability. The weak currents were predicted by Rich Signell s model, which he kindly ran before the cruise. BOF70 Geo Processes, Enviro. Change in the Northeast US 1 days at sea. 1 stations occupied.
