Alternate Leg ID: 91
Area of Operations: Georges Bank, Lydonia Canyon, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: January 16, 1981 to January 22, 1981
Objectives: Collect CTD and suspended matter samples and deploy two moorings in Lydonia Canyon. Collect surface grab samples near Lease Block 312 (for analysis of texture, trace metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, and benthos). Collect grab samples at four long-term stations for benthic seasonal and transport changes. Collect grab samples to map surficial sediment in Lydonia Canyon.
Type of Activity: Sampling
Information to be derived: Time series data
Samples and chemical analysis
Suspended sediment concentrations
