Collect grab samples from the Hanalei River using kayaks and snorkling. Collect soil samples within the rivers watershed. Collect one sample of suspended matter from the river while it was at a modest flood stage. All samples were collected for analysis of 137Cs, 7Be, 210Pb, and magnetic properties.

Type of Activity: Sampling

Information to be derived: Samples and Chemical Analysis

Summary: Two time-series traps and about 6 tube traps recovered. 9 sediment cores collected and cut by Amy Draut. Bothner and Rich Reynolds collected upland sediment (soil) samples at 16 locations within the Hanalei watershed. Samples analyzed in USGS Menlo Park, Woods Hole, Denver and various other laboraties.
