Despite the rain and snow on February 15 and 16, cruise number 32 of the Mass Bay Long-Term Study was successfully completed aboard the USCG Cutter Marcus Hanna. The project, jointly funded by the USGS and the Massachusetts Water Resources Association (MWRA), has maintained moorings to measure currents, suspended sediments, temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen at the future outfall site in Massachusetts Bay since December 1989. On the first sea day, the mooring crew performed a turn-around of two bottom tripods and two sub-surface moorings. The sampling crew collected sediment samples and bottom videos on the second day. Participants included: Mike Bothner, Brad Butman, Dann Blackwood, Jon Borden, Michael Casso, Jessica Cote, Marinna Martini, Rick Rendigs, and David Walsh.
