TIDBIT FROM THE CHANNEL ISLANDS
This from Guy Cochrane, via phone mail from the R/V Ballena: "Shot 40 sq km of
side-scan with the Klein system off the north side of Anacapa Island, working
with Channel Islands Marine Sanctuary people and the National Marine Fisheries
Service. We've also done a day and a half of bottom video using Hank's camera
sled, so we have about two hours of video tape. We've had really great weather.
Conditions have been perfect for both side-scan and bottom video. Mike Boyle and
I are doing okay."

CHANNEL ISLANDS BENTHIC HABITATS CRUISE
Mike Boyle and I finished the two-week Channel Islands/Santa Barbara benthic
habitats cruise on Saturday, June 27, and off-loaded on Sunday, June 28. We
sidescanned a 40-sq-km area of Anacapa Island and a 60-sq-km area on the coast
south of Ventura. Both areas contain state fish reserve areas and are in the
Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, or the National Park. We also have
about 8 hours of bottom video from both areas, thanks to very cooperative
weather. We did have some trouble with Differential GPS reception and will try
to improve our system prior to returning to the area. Guy Cochrane
