Summary for Field Activity Number 2000-061-FA

Alternate Leg ID: MH33B-00; IB H-61-00-BH

Area of Operations: Boston Harbor, Massachusetts, United States, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: July 09, 2000 to July 09, 2000

Objectives: The cruise objective is to collect sediment cores at 6 long-term monitoring stations within Boston Harbor. The cores will be used to determine the concentrations and inventories of heavy metals. The previous work at these stations has documented a 50% decrease in metal concentrations in surface sediments between 1977 and 1993. This sampling will check conditions just before the sewage outfall is changed from Deer Island (at the mouth of the harbor) to the new location 9 miles offshore.

Type of Activity: Sampling
Photography

Information to be derived: Samples and Chemical Analysis
