24 May 2009 –SATURN-03 survey.

At 0900 we collected a water sample from a bottom depth for a full suite of chemistry and nucleic acid analysis. This sample was fresh water, and it served as the first of five bottom-water samples that spanned the flood tide ETM particle resuspension event. The others were collected at 1200, 1300, 1500, and 1600. Also, a surface water sample was collected at 1300. At 1900 we steamed across the bar and out to the coastal ocean to empty the holding tank and dispose of garbage. We spent the night off shore.
