Title: 106-Mile Dumpsite Oceanographic Project (Mid Atlantic Bight); Surface Drifters and Hydrographic Measurements; NOAA/NOS
Description:
Abstract:
The 106-Mile Dumpsite Oceanographic project is response to the Ocean Dumping Act (http://www.epa.gov/history/topics/mprsa/02.htm) which directs the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the US Coast Guard to perform research, monitoring, and surveillance until ocean dumping of municipal sewage sludge is ended in 1992. NOAA is responsible for research and monitoring of the far-field and long-term effects of dumping at the dumpsite, which is located in the Mid-Atlantic Bight (MAB). Four 1991 seasonal deployments of four satellite-tracked drifters each and a single 1990 deployment of eight drifters were conducted across the continental shelf break and Dumpsite. The tracking and processing of near-surface drifters continues. Coupled with EPA weekly drifter deployments, the CEOB drifter study provides information on the relationship between suspended sludge dispersal to the near-surface circulation and interaction of shelf water, slope water, and Gulf Stream over the continental margin in the MAB. Hydrographic studies include quasi-synoptic conductivity and temperature profile and expendable bathythermograph (XBT) surveys of the MAB and dumpsite. These surveys were conducted in support of biological and chemical sampling and in conjunction with the deployment of drifters. Weekly transects were taken across the shelf, slope, and northern tip of the Dumpsite to the Gulf Stream from the ship of opportunity, M/V OLEANDER; this was an expansion of the monthly program managed by National Marine Fisheries Service's Northeast Fisheries Center, in Narragansett, Rhode Island.
