Equipment Used
pneumatic vibracorer
Geopulse seismic system
Loran-C navigation system
Collect vibracores in CT, RI, MA and NH waters as part of a
co-operative offshore, non-energy resource assessment with the U.S.
Minerals Management Service (Continental Margins Program).
Information to be Derived
Non-energy resource assessment
Eight Long Island Sound sites were targeted during the CT
leg. These were cored between 9/15 and 9/21, and the ship then went
on to complete the RI, MA and NH legs. Coring targets were selected
using seismic data from previous Long Island Sound cruises (AST
85-8, UCONN-84-1, AST 83-2, SO 87-1), and the target locations were
confirmed during the cruise using a uniboom seismic system. The
confirming  paper seismic records for each core location are
archived at the Long Island Sound Resource Center, UCONN-Avery
Point. The cores were split, photographed, described and archived at
the WHOI core lab in Woods Hole, MA. Dr. Paul Gayes performed more
extensive examinations of cores AT 88-2 and AT 88-5. Some of his
results are archived at the Long Island Sound Resource Center along
with a notebook containing prints and original negatives of the
cores, sampling reports and all available paper records of the
coring operation, results and related work.
7 days at sea.
Data types: vibracores
Navigation technique: Loran-C
Occupied 14 stations.

In addition to helping with the assessment of offshore sand
and gravel resources, the Long Island Sound cores were located so
they would also be useful in sorting out the stratigraphic history
of the Sound. This work augmented the coring that took place in 1984
(Cruise AT 84-1). Cores AT 88-2 and AT 88-5 were collected in
support of work by Dr. Paul Gayes (Gayes and Bokuniewicz, 1991).
