Survey InvestigatorDescription
FR 05/97

K. Woolfe (James Cook University) Cruise FR 05/97 (cruise 2 in a series of 4 for TROPICS97 - Tropical River-Ocean Processes in Coastal Settings) was undertaken to collect sediment samples and to survey the continental shelf, slope and rise between Manam Island and Wewak on the north coast of PNG in the Bismarck Sea and the Gulf of Papua. Survey methods included cores, grabs, seismic lines, sidescan sonar fish tows, CTD, and underway instrumentation. Data, water and sediment samples were collected for on board and laboratory analyses. Sub-samples from grabs were collected for radio chemistry, bulk chemistry and grain size analysis. Two sediment trap arrays were also deployed and one recovered (previously deployed on cruise FR 04/97). Related cruises are FR 04/97, FR 06/97 and FR 07/97.
