Lateral Bay Research Campaign

September 9, 2012 (All day) to September 11, 2012 (All day)

SATURN-04Lateral Bay Research

Chief Scientists: Fred Prahl & Jim Lerczak
Ship: T/V Forerunner
Observation Station: SATURN-04

Scientific Goals
Understand the biogeochemical exchange between lateral bays and the estuary, and to develop approaches and models to quantify the contribution of these exchanges to the functioning of the estuarine bioreactor. Research campaign will perform tidal surveys using bottom landers, surface moorings, ADCP, CTD, and shipboard flow-through system.
