Deployment : The tripods were assembled, tested and secured onboard the RIV Sea Diver, which left the Little Creek Amphibious Base in Norfolk, Virginia early on 26 September. While underway to the deployment site, the continuous surface water conductivity and temperature survey was run and several CTD casts were made. The tripods were deployed on 26 September and secured to the sea floor with sand anchors by VIMS divers. The R/V Sea Diver then began the series of on/off shore transects at the tripod deployment site for approximately 12 hours. The vessel returned to port on 27 September .

Recovery: The tripod recovery cruise began late on 21 October and repeated the underway data collection scheme of the September cruise. On October 22 divers removed the sand anchors and the tripods were recovered without incident. The on/off shore transects were repeated and transit to port occurred on 23 October.
