Oil boom discontinuous. Lots of boats inside of pass in entrance to Terry Cove, sitting mostly doing nothing. Seemed to be alot of boats with no action, when something could have been done to be collecting some of the floating materials. Maybe becasue of outgoing tide, they were letting it leave the bay. No, access to park under bridge is easy. lots of clean-up crews occupying parking areas, but accessible.

There were tourists on the beach and in the water Piece of cake Decent. There was a storm brewing west of us.

25 6/18/2010 online the balloon is beginning to look deformed, our helium tank ran out of air no Ocean Springs, MS Latitude: 30.41, Longitude: -88.83 in our first attempt, we got 213. In our second attempt, I am not sure, most of them were of the same location or of the highway for the balloon: 1000 feet, straight up. for the kite, we eventually got to 1000 feet, but it kept blowing away from the coast/shore Erin Sharkey Erin Sharkey, Chrissy and Colleen (from Americorp) this was my first The beach at Biloxi was very pretty and pristine. It did not appear to have been touched/affected by the oil yet. We did find an odd pool of what looked like oil at Lat 30.40/Long -88.83. Also, we found hundreds of dead hermit crabs washed ashore at our second location..and a few huge dead fish. No trouble getting to the site. However, when tried to fly the kite on the beach next to a marina next to the Hard Rock Casino, a security guy drove his golf cart to us to tell us that some of the boaters were worried that our kite would "fall on their boats".. since the kite kept flying away from where we wanted it, we just reeled it in and left. very windy mid-day. We could get good balloon pictures, but later the kite and balloon were hard to control and they kept blowing into the road so we probably did not get any good pictures both we should probably have extra batteries and maybe an extra memory card in our bag. I am not sure how many pictures it holds around 11am {u'keys': [u'MAX(dataset_id)'], u'data': [[25]]}
26 6/18/2010 16:00:14 Kris Ansin First helium tank was empty Helium tank filled 29 27 28 (N)/ 89 59 32 (W) 600-800 ft Hunter Daniel, Erica Chomsky, Garry 0 There was boom stretched across the entrance to the bay, and the working men didn't seem happy to see us. When we first pulled up, a large scooner began to approach the boom, but as we stayed back and floated, so did the officials. Later, we approached the boom, which had oil splotches, and we had no troubles. Smelled oily. We had intended on going further into the bay, but couldn't cross the boom. So, we had to take a back channel on the other side of an island, but by the time we made it to the next opening, we were running low on fuel and had to return. Flying conditions were good. The balloon began to sink a couple times, and so we tightened the line. I turned in the photos to Kris Ansin, one of the co-ordinaters from the LA Bucket Brigade, and so I haven't seen the images yet.29 27 28 balloon 10:30:00 {u'keys': [u'MAX(dataset_id)'], u'data': [[26]]}

29 6/23/2010 13:16:35 FTP A balloon popped, and we ran out of helium. A balloon Around 30°14'51.89"N 88° 7'36.77"W 30- 40 feet at the first flight, 300-400 feet for the second Justin Blancher Justin Blancher, David Sheffield, Sean Stamm None that I know of for this project The number of people working at the beach cleaning it up seemed to increase, and the beach did seem cleaner, since the last time we were there just to see whats going on. However there was still some oil on the shore side of the boom on the western side of the pier, and oil found in some tidal pools on the eastern side. Also, as we were walking by one of the tidal pools (not sure if we got any aerial photos) there was a large number of hermit crabs and one large blue crab that had exited the water, which did have a rainbow sheen and a few small tar balls. It could have been simply that the temperature of the tidal pool was high enough to lower the oxygen content, or the oil may have had a factor. Not really, the public beach access has some workers in the parking lot, but there's still plenty of parking. The wind was about 7 to 8 miles per hour, and the balloon was being pushed onshore, and for the first flight, we had not put enough helium in the balloon, so the balloon only got to a maximum height of about 40 feet. Justin had to then hold the line to the balloon and walk a few yards offshore to try to get a better picture of any oil on the shoreline. The second flight we put plenty of helium in the balloon, but the wind was still a factor, so it only got to about 350-400 feet. balloon first flight at approx 30°14'46.37"N 88° 7'36.24"W and moved westward until about 30°14'52.63"N 88° 7'59.03"W. However, if you look at it on Google Earth, the old picture shows that the pier extends out into the water, but the real shoreline now extends to about 10 yards off the end of the pier. The second flight started around 30°14'54.93"N 88° 7'40.24"W and moved around to the eastern side of the pier and we looped around a large embayment that isn't on Google Earth. We think that the spit at Google Earth's 30°14'30.36"N 88° 6'47.31"W has extended westward, making an embayment. The island just offshore also has moved back. For those going out and flying the balloons, make sure you both bring enough helium and put enough in the balloon. 2:15 PM(the first flight) and approx 4:30 PM ( for the second flight) {u'keys': [u'MAX(dataset_id)'], u'data': [[29]]}

36 7/10/2010 LA bucket brigade on canal street has it the new balloon is very difficult to tie/untie closed one glove ripped, we bought new batteries, but more should be supplied Cocodrie, LA 1000 max 500 feet, the wind was causing the balloon to fly horizontally, and then it would fall when it hit a weird wind patch, it was difficult Erin Sharkey Erin Sharkey, Jo Pang, Paul Hurd, Nisreen 0 We just mapped from the water so it is hard to tell if there were any dead animals or signs of recovery. We did see a patch of oil in the marsh grass, but other than that we did not see or smell any oil. Some people called the police/coast guard on us so we were surrounded by 3 black sheriff boats at one point who were telling us to stop "bothering" the work boats (when we were merely idling along on a 10 ft boat while mapping). Otherwise, a family donated their time / boats and sea-doos to take us out in order to map. We had no trouble getting out to the locations, no one actually told us to leave (although a few workboats did drive up to us and it seemed they were trying to intimidate us to leave, but we did not.) The wind was very difficult. Being in a boat, we had to be very careful not to risk having the balloon fall into the water due to the dicey wind conditions. We had to frequently completely stop the boat in order to get the balloon back to normal flying conditions. I think we still got good shots of a number of areas on the coast and a small island. balloon WE NEED MORE BATTERIES! and possibly an additional memory card for the camera. We had some very eager volunteers who wanted images of everything we passed, and it was difficult to do this when we were not sure if the batteries had died or if the camera had run out of memory. between 12 and 5 pm {u'keys': [u'MAX(dataset_id)'], u'data': [[36]]}

A gentlemen with a camp down in Port Sulphur,Jeff Holmes, took us out on his boat. Though there is a recently established rule for getting within 65' of boom (which makes collecting shorelines imagery difficult) we were well within 65' and weren't bothered by any of the cleanup workers out on the water. Mild steady wind that died out towards the end of the session which caused the balloon to gain in altitude. balloon The coke bottle-top rig didn't do a great job of holding the camera at a straight down angle, resulting in some oblique imagery that I'm sure will be difficult to stitch. I'm working on getting some more precise GPS coordinates from the boat capt. Started around 10:00 am. {u'keys': [u'MAX(dataset_id)'], u'data': [[37]]}

One section of water berm on the beach has been removed. Beach is still closed. Nope. Pier is still open to the public. The wind was blowing South today, which is unusual. Usually, when we have mapped, it has been blowing North. This made it kind of silly to map from the pier. If I had been able to get on the beach, I would have been able to cover a lot of area. I did go out on the beach and walked Southwest down the dune for about 100 yards, but I got kicked off. balloon The low angle of the balloon caused me to get a lot of shots of just the water, unfortunately. I should have pulled it in more, but it was hard to tell. I think I got some good shots of the area south of the pier, which we haven't been able to get very well before. 12:00-1:30 {u'keys': [u'MAX(dataset_id)'], u'data': [[39]]}

Bill Maus is an awesome USACE ranger dude. chris brantley is a pal. neglected to call Milton Cambre, unfortunately. next time. started with gentle wind, wind picked up while team was futzing with rig. launched the double rig--IR, but too heavy / balloon not inflated enough. then launched single rig, regular camera, but wind knocked it down, despite attempts to manipulate the line. balloon dropped to 50 m, line was slack, caught on construction site, snapped. balloon recovered, camera hit the water. haven't seen those photos. switched to fuji camera. switched to kite. gravy. both goal for this site is to document erosion of shoreline at the mouth of the spillway, and theattempt to slow this erosion through volunteer vegetative plantings. previous planting efforts (2009-) by Bayou Rebirth have anchored Phragmites into deepwater, (some Spartina alterniflora in mud flats) dampening regular waves (but not larger tidal motion.) Surprisingly, Phragmites hangs on. still pronounced erosion at points, but accumulation of dead Limna feet deep in areas formerly eroding. common ground wetlands has been planting cypress trees since the spillway closed. 10:30-1pm {u'keys': [u'MAX(dataset_id)'], u'data': [[58]]}
59 4/9/2012 15:54:42 dropbox Scott rigged the camera weakly, and the IR camera got loose and the lens hit into the ground during an attempted take off. "Lens Error." IR camera, Shannon is req'ing scott to build one from Public Lab stock Bohemia WMA, Plaquemines Parish, LA 29.52917, -89.727047 1361 files, not all files delivered to save space to be evaluated later. couple hundred feet scott eustis ( scott e, paul t, 0 Mardi Gras Pass is a new phenomenon since the Flood of 2011, and new since the last google earth photo series. The oil company has poured new road bed into the swiftly moving river cut since Dec 2011, date of LPBF last published available photos. No. But it did require hiking a couple miles of flooded roadbed. A truck would have been nice. Wind was off and on 15mph from the south east. wind direction was uniform--toward the river. We were just scouting, so we did not bring the canoe (we should have, we could have used it to ferry the cut). so our location was limited that way. kite We tried flying an E-Trex GPS unit--it was too heavy. Jonathan from GRN had GRN's AMOD tracker, or that would have been used, as it was lighter. At first, the rig was attached too closely to the kite to allow for the kite to ascend above the treeline, where the winds increased. we moved the rig further from the kite, then removed the E-Trex, and take off was successful. 1pm-1:30pm {u'keys': [u'MAX(dataset_id)'], u'data': [[59]]}

Stark contrast from current mid-2013 google maps imagery due to beach erosion & demolished houses will be visible once the map is complete. Plum Island Airport (2B2) is a small, local airport in the area that appreciates the the work we do. When mapping in the area, I give advance notice & check in with Airport Operations--either Dick Capithorne or John Murray--to gain approval. While flying the sensor, I maintain contact with 2B2 with periodic calls. If it is a busy day at the airport, a NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) will be announced to ensure safety. ESE 10-15 mph put the balloon & sensor in a good position. With winds out of the ESE, the preferred situation would be to capture imagery at low tide to ensure coverage of the coast & a neighborhood road to provide a landmark. balloon I want to practice using a kite with a waterproof casing for the camera. The waterproof casing will make that easy. 1530 - 1700 {u'keys': [u'MAX(dataset_id)'], u'data': [[60]]}
