MOOS Upper-Canyon Experiment

Project Manager and Lead Engineer: Mark Chaffey
Lead Scientists: Charlie Paull, Jim Barry 

Plans are on schedule to relocate the MOOS mooring to a site up-canyon from its present location at Shepard Meander. The new site in the mid-to-upper canyon is thought to be more active. The purpose of the experiment will be to document the frequency and severity of sediment transport events within and on the flanks of the canyon, and to determine the physical processes that occur during such events.
