  Project Information  
Project Title: CAREER: Gulf of Maine Temperature Trends and Variability from the early Holocene to the Present Project Status: Submitted
Principal Investigator: Katherine A. Allen, Maine Project Institution: Maine
Project ID: 106174 Version #: 1
Date Submitted: 6/15/2018 12:41:00 PM Created By: Katherine A. Allen
Date Last Modified: 5/6/2019 2:36:00 PM URI Serial #: None
Funding Agencies: NSF/OCE/MGG - 1847742 - Funded
Summary of Field Work: At 12 sites in the Gulf of Maine: collection of sediment multi-cores, CTD/water column sampling, MOCNESS plankton tows. May aim to collect one gravity core in Jordan Basin (site #8) if radiocarbon dating reveals a temporal gap between existing multi and piston cores at that location (WHOI core repository).
Summary of Facility Requirements: Multi-corer, hydrocast (Niskin rosette, CTD), MOCNESS, appropriate winch/wire for all of the above. Possible gravity corer.

Explanation of Science Party Requirements and Technician Requirements Science party includes PI, 4 collaborators, 5 students, 2 student-media/documentarians, 2 techs. PI Allen has experience with multi-coring, gravity coring, and hydrocasts (most recently: RV Armstrong cruise Fall 2017 with PI Lloyd Keigwin), but additional technical assistance is needed with winch operation and MOCNESS.
