The authors thank the captains and crews of the R/V Connecticut for their outstanding logistical support for this field measurement program. This effort involved two cruises to deploy and recover instruments at three locations to obtain this data set. John Warner (USGS)was the chief scientist on the cruises. Christine Sabens (USGS) helped prepare for deployment and recovery. Jonathan Borden (USGS) helped oversee the preparation and deployment of the physical oceanographic instrumentation. Neil Ganju (USGS), Sandy Baldwin (USGS), Kate McMullen (USGS), Brenton Taylor (USGS), and Elizabeth Pendleton (USGS) helped in deployment and(or) recovery of the instrumentation. Sandy Baldwin took many of the photographs in this report. The Remotely Operated Vehicle was expertly operated by Jonathon Borden. Peer reviewers Neil Ganju and Erika Lentz (USGS) provided many valuable comments that improved this report. This research was conducted as part of the U.S. Geological Survey Coastal and Marine Geology Program.
