Dates: May 21, 2002 to May 22, 2002

Objectives: Exchange moorings at the LNB site and off Scituate. Collect sediment samples and oxygen profiles at our long-term monitoring stations.

Type of Activity: Sampling
Mooring work
Photography

Information to be derived: Time series data
Samples and Chemical Analysis
Grain size analysis
Suspended Sediment Concentrations

Summary: Moorings deployed: 4 (#689, 690, 691 and 692, all recovered FA 02046 MARCUS HANNA Oct. 22-25, 2002). Moorings recovered: 5 (#682, 683, 684, 685 and 686, all deployed FA 02026 MARCUS HANNA Feb. 5-6, 2002). 8 cores collected at Station 3; 2 cores collected at Station 2; 2 water samples recovered; 13 tube traps recovered/deployed. Recovered Anderson trap sample at LNB location - a good one; redeployed same at LNB location. Honjo traps recovered at LNB and Scituate - both worked; redeployed Honjo traps at same sites. WHOI scientists deployed/recovered oxygen profiler 2x at each USGS station (2 and 3). WHOI scientists deployed 2 SQUIRTS instruments (porewater sampling devices) near USGS Station 3 to be recovered 1 week later.
