Field Activity 2015-303-FA
Dates: Jaunary 26 to February 06
Location: Crocker Reef, Florida
Chief Scientist: Kimberly Yates
Objectives: Collect water chemistry data and service equipment.

Field Activity 2015-305-FA
Dates: February 09 to March 13
Location: Leesburg, FL (Buggs Creek Pond)
Chief Scientist: Other
Objectives: Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) funded project to measure the acoustic character of different sound sources used for marine geophysics.

Field Activity 2015-307-FA
Dates: February 09 to February 20
Location: Breton Island, LA
Chief Scientist: James Flocks, Jack Kindinger
Objectives: Retrieve Seabird tide and wave gauges deployed around Breton Island and scout for benchmarks previously established in the area.

Field Activity 2015-309-FA
Dates: February 23 to February 23
Location: Indian Rocks Beach, Pinellas County, FL
Chief Scientist: Christopher Smith
Objectives: Assess monitoring wells

Field Activity 2015-311-FA
Dates: February 23 to February 25
Location: Frenchman's Creek, Saint Petersburg, FL
Chief Scientist: Nancy DeWitt
Objectives: Primary purpose to test the interferometric swath system on a small vessel with new mount for shallow river surveying. Secondly, to use the information from the Coda Octopus F190R to post process external navigation from a base station.

Field Activity 2015-308-FA
Dates: February 23 to February 25
Location: Wacassasa, FL
Chief Scientist: Terrence McCloskey
Objectives: Collection of sediments cores to investigate the preservation of storm deposits.

Field Activity 2015-304-FA
Dates: February 28 to March 07
Location: Everglades National Park (ENP), specifically Lostman's River and portions of Shark River
Chief Scientist: Mark Erik Hansen
Objectives: To perform an interferometric swath bathymetric survey of Lostmans River and unmapped portions of the Shark River. The goal is to merge this data with previous swath surveys in this area for complete bathymetry coverage. This effort is needed for resource management and hydrologic modeling work in ENP.
