The NOAA National Underseas Research Program at Rutgers University is establishing a Long-term Ecosystem Observatory off New Jersey in 15 meters of water. As part of a bottom boundary layer study at this site, WHOI deployed a bottom instrument frame during the winter of 1993-94. The bottom instrument carried a current meter, a vertical array of optical back scattering sensors, temperature, pressure and conductivity sensors and an Acoustical Backscattering Sensor. The deployment was partially successful as the acoustic system failed. The other instrumentation worked well for 3 weeks returning data on winter conditions at the site. The extreme winter waves ended the experiment by tipping the instrument over on its side. The optical instrumentation was calibrated with sediment from the site, and the results from the experiment presented.

The importance of fine-scale flow processes and food availability in the maintenance of soft-sediment communities Snelgrove, Paul V. R. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1993-01)Although the association between soft-sediment invertebrates and a specific sediment type has been documented for many habitats, most studies have been correlative and have failed to convincingly demonstrate any single ...
Lateral circulation and sediment transport driven by axial winds in an idealized, partially mixed estuary Chen, Shih-Nan; Sanford, Lawrence P.; Ralston, David K. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-12-03)A 3D hydrodynamic model (ROMS) is used to investigate lateral circulation in a partially mixed estuary driven by axial wind events and to explore the associated transport of sediments. The channel is straight with a ...
