On March 18th and 19th, John Bratton (WHFC) joined two scientists from the Naval Research Laboratory (Tom Boyd and John Pohlman) for a cruise in Chesapeake Bay aboard the R/V Cape Henlopen.

The cruise originated in Norfolk and ended at Annapolis. The work performed included gravity coring, box coring, water sampling, and CTD profiling. Although the primary purpose of the cruise was to collect additional porewater samples from a site cored last summer, it provided an opportunity to test a new lightweight sediment press constructed with the assistance of Joe Newell. The press performed admirably. John Pohlman spent the following week in Woods Hole working with USGS and WHOI scientists.
