Days 1: In Port, Woods Hole

Monday, May 23 the DELAWARE II went out on a shakedown.  We left port at approximately 1130 and returned to Woods Hole approximately 0600.

The objectives of the shakedown were to:

  1.  Test deployment of the clam gear and power systems
  2.  Test and calibrate the Survey Sensor package (SSP)
  3.  Test and calibrate archival sensors (minilog and inclinometer)
  4.  Test and calibrate positional data for the dredge utilizing an experimental trackpoint system
  5.  Deploy Van Veen Grap sampler for benthic samples
  6.  Test FSCS for Shellfish using new electronic Limonterra digital measuring boards
