Samples and Chemical Analysis
Work performed consisted of CRP surveys with the new 15-m
streamer in shore-perpendicular transects in the areas of Patchogue
Bay, the south shore of Great South Bay (near wilderness area/Smith
Point, and Watch Hill to Talisman), and west of Heckscher State
Park.  Distributed piezometer sampling was performed along the shore
of Patchogue Bay, and an intensive piezometer transect was sampled
adjacent to Shorefront Park in Patchogue bewteen the outfall of
Little Creek to the east, and the Ocean Ave. pier to the west.
Piezometer transect locations extended from the beach out to 30 m
offshore, and down to a maximum depth of 9 m.  The piezometer
samples revealed a zone of low-salinity groundwater that extended
offshore as far out as was sampled, confined by what was interpreted
as buried salt marsh peat in the shallow subsurface.  Seepage meters
were also deployed at this site by a team from Stony Brook
University, and revealed substantial discharge in the subsurface.  A
radon time series was also collected from a raft anchored offshore
in this area.  Additional work planned for FY2009 includes nutrient
analysis of samples collected in the last field effort, and
additional work farther offshore and along the north side of Fire
Island in the spring-summer of 2009.
12 days at sea.
