Area of Operations: Long Island Sound, Connecticut, New York, United States, North America, North Atlantic
Dates: April 11, 1996 to April 17, 1996
Objectives: Collect bottom samples (grab) and video camera footage at selected sites throughout Long Island Sound for validation of sedimentary environments as determined from a regional USGS sidescan sonar survey in 1995. Selected video camera transects will be utilized to verify transition areas of sedimentary environments within Long Island Sound. A secondary object, if time allowed, was to collect additional sidescan sonar data in areas of Long Island Sound where no data or additional records were required as an adjunct to the 1995 ANDERSON cruise (ANDR 95010).
Type of Activity: Sampling
