Cover- Hurricanes Edouard (shown) and Hortense passed near the ONR coastal mixing & optics mooring site (CMO site) south of Cape Cod on September 1 and 14, 1996, respectively. Optical instruments (BIOPS) were deployed at four depths by University of California/Santa Barbara scientists from a mooring and a bottom tripod. Data indicate major sediment resuspension events. Instrumentation and data figures supplied by Tommy Dickey, Grace Chang, and Derek Manov at UCSB. Satellite image provided by David Porter and Donald Thompson of The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab. Sensor manufacturers included WET Labs Inc., Sea Tech Inc., Sea-Bird Electronics Inc., and Biospherical Instruments Inc. BIOPS was developed under NSF and ONR funding.
