Summary for Field Activity Number 2001-026-FA

Alternate Leg ID: HB1-01 (Hingham Bay); IB C-1-01-BH

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

Dates: January 30, 2001 to January 30, 2001

Objectives: Collect short cores for Metal Flux Study in order to test gel probes against the centrifuge pore water extraction method. Samples were collected around the long-term Station 8 in the Boston Harbor study. Target position: 42deg 17 min 28.688 sec N, 070 deg 55 min 48.507 sec W. This location is west of the typical Station 8 in order to avoid a concentrated mat of Ampilisca (amphipod) tubes. These tubes make it diffcult to cut the core for pore water studies.

Type of Activity: Sampling

Information to be derived: Samples and Chemical Analysis

Summary: Short Cores: 8

USGS Project Number: 7241-32059
