Field Activity 2015-303-FADates: Jaunary 26 to February 06Location: Crocker Reef, FloridaChief Scientist: Kimberly YatesObjectives: Collect water chemistry data and service equipment.
Field Activity 2015-305-FADates: February 09 to March 13Location: 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-FADates: February 09 to February 20Location: Breton Island, LAChief Scientist: James Flocks, Jack KindingerObjectives: Retrieve Seabird tide and wave gauges deployed around Breton Island and scout for benchmarks previously established in the area.
Field Activity 2015-309-FADates: February 23 to February 23Location: Indian Rocks Beach, Pinellas County, FLChief Scientist: Christopher SmithObjectives: Assess monitoring wells
Field Activity 2015-311-FADates: February 23 to February 25Location: Frenchman's Creek, Saint Petersburg, FLChief Scientist: Nancy DeWittObjectives: 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-FADates: February 23 to February 25Location: Wacassasa, FLChief Scientist: Terrence McCloskeyObjectives: Collection of sediments cores to investigate the preservation of storm deposits.
Field Activity 2015-304-FADates: February 28 to March 07Location: Everglades National Park (ENP), specifically Lostman's River and portions of Shark RiverChief Scientist: Mark Erik HansenObjectives: 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.
