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.

Type of Activity: Sampling
Mooring work

Information to be derived: Time series data
Samples and Chemical Analysis
Suspended Sediment Concentrations

Summary: Moorings deployed: 2 (#340 and 341, recovered FA 90016 WHITE HEATH July 10-11, 1990). Moorings recovered: 2 (#338 and 339, deployed FA 89035 WHITE HEATH Dec. 5-6, 1989).
