Area of Operations: Massachusetts Bay, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: Mar 27, 1990 to Mar 29, 1990
Objectives: The objective of the program is to make long-term measurements of currents and sediment transport in the vicinity of the proposed ocean outfall in Massachusetts Bay. The purpose of this cruise was to recover and redeploy the instrumented moorings. Samples of bottom sediments are collected on each cruise required to service the instruments. This was the second in a series of six cruises during the 2 year period of the present Joint Funding Agreement between the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority and the USGS.
