Field Activity Views: This Month's Field Activities (detailed list) | Field Activity Calendar (calendar view)

Field Activity 2015-607-FA
Dates: February 02 to April 17
Location: San Pablo Bay in northern San Francisco Bay, CA, USA
Research Project: Sediment Transport in Coastal Environments
CMGP Center: Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center
Chief Scientist: Jessica Lacy

Dates: February 09 to March 13
Location: Leesburg, FL (Buggs Creek Pond)
Research Project: Other
CMGP Center: St. Petesburg Coastal and Marine Science Center
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 2015-617-FA
Dates: February 23 to March 06
Location: Monterey Bay, California, United States, Pacific Ocean
Research Project: Coastal and marine earthquake, tsunami, and landslide active margin field studies
CMGP Center: Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center
Chief Scientist: Daniel Brothers, Katherine Coble, Samuel Johnson
Objectives: 1) New multichannel streamer shakedown (including seismic-reflection profiles across the Santa Cruz shelf, San Gregorio Fault Zone, and Smooth Ridge) 2) Investigation of paleo-channel cut-and-fill deposits around the head of Monterey Canyon


Field Activity 2015-614-FA
Dates: March 01 to March 06
Location: Santa Barbara, CA
Research Project: High Energy Active Margins
CMGP Center: Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center
Chief Scientist: Patrick Barnard
Objectives: beach monitoring


Field Activity 2015-302-FA
Dates: March 01 to March 05
Location: Gulf of Mexico
Research Project: Other
CMGP Center: St. Petesburg Coastal and Marine Science Center
Chief Scientist: Caitlin Reynolds
Objectives: To collect and redeploy an ongoing Sediment Trap.


Field Activity 2015-304-FA
Dates: March 15 to March 21
Location: Everglades National Park (ENP), specifically Lostman's River and portions of Shark River
Research Project: Lostman's Shark Rver-NPS 41940
CMGP Center: St. Petesburg Coastal and Marine Science Center
