This research program has been carried out with support from the U.S. Geological Survey Coastal and Marine Geology Program, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA), and the United States Coast Guard (USCG). We thank colleagues at MWRA for their scientific and administrative support: Michael Connor, Kenneth Keay, Wendy Leo, Michael Mickelson, and Andea Rex. For their outstanding assistance deploying and recovering the long-term oceanographic moorings and obtaining samples at sea on 49 cruises over the last 15 years, we thank the crews of the USCG buoy tenders WHITE HEATH and MARCUS HANNA and their captains, Michael Frias, Buddy Blackburn, Vernon Shay, Peter Boardman, Richard Foy, Thomas Dickey, and Paul Dupuis. We thank Frank Mirarchi, captain of the fishing vessel CHRISTOPHER ANDREW, for numerous additional servicing of the long-term moorings.
