Summary for Field Activity Number 2000-004-FA

Alternate Leg ID: MH34-00; IB H-4-00-MY

Area of Operations: Massachusetts Bay, Scituate, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: September 26, 2000 to September 28, 2000

Objectives: Three day trips were completed. Day 1: Exchanged moorings off Boston and Scituate. Day 2: Collected sediment cores with the new hydraulically damped corer at Stations 2, 3 and 3b (near the benthic chamber deployment site). Deployed and recovered oxygen profiler - 2 times at Station 3 and once at Station 2. Recovered one benthic chamber by SCUBA divers. The second chamber was not found. Day 3: An attempt was made to recover the lost slow corer from location east of Stellwagen Bank at 200 m water depth. A three grapling hook assembly (on an 8-foot spreader) was used with a camera attached to the middle hook. Dann Blackwood arranged 6 submersible flashlights on the central hook which did a good job illuminating to the side and bottom. The whole assemblage was lowered on half-inch tenex rope (breaking strength about 11,000 lbs). Approximately 2 hours were spent on and around the last known position of the core. It was not seen in the camera, nor was it hooked during the dragging operation.
