Area of Operations: eastern Long Island Sound, Fishers Island Sound, Connecticut, New York, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: June 02, 1992 to June 10, 1992
Objectives: Bottom sampling and photography to determine textural distributions of surficial sediments, to relate these distributions to active sedimentary processes, and to evaluate potential near-shore sand and gravel resources; benthic biologic sampling to evaluate the faunal distributions and concentrations and relate them to habitats within a previously collected sidescan mosaic; and sediment sampling to examine the present trace metal concentrations within and outside the dredge-spoil dumpsites off the Thames River estuary.
Type of Activity: Sampling
Information to be derived:
Summary: Sediment samples: 297; Bottom photography: 300 stations; Benthic biology: 60 samples; Geochemical: 29 samples.
