  Description:
    Abstract:
      United States Geological Survey, Menlo Park, California.
      Chief Scientists: Mark Pickett, Terry D. Jackson. Biological
      and Geological and Geophysical data (sidescansonar, uniboom,

Equipment notes: sidescansonar with all associated equipment (1m x .3m x .3 m in size, 100 khz frequency, about 90 db output; winch occupies a 2 m square foot print on deck.) uniboom with all associated equipment (a surface-towed sled, 1.5 m square, hand-deployed over the fantail, 1khz frequency, about 100 db output) planktonnet: (they consist of metal rings 0,5 or 1.0 meters in diameter plus a 2-meter long mesh bag) and associated sampling equipment rawinsonde system driftbuoy boxcore: two box coring systems (big blue which gives a 40 cm by 40 cm sample and a standard nel box corer which gives a 20 cm by 30 cm sample) - both weigh about 1500 lbs sis1000: chirp seismic-reflection profiler with all associated equipment (eg-winch). The chirp system (datasonics cap-6000) fish weighs 300 lbs in air and is about 0.75 m long. The lab consoles are two 9" racks, each about 22" high. They weight about 100 lbs total. The fish transmits a swept band from 1 to 10 khz and has an output of about 200 db referenced to 1m. bathymetry: depthsounder planktonnet: planktontrawl bathymetry: bathymetric and navigation equipment tempsalinometer: seacats Publications - Eittreim, Stephen L., and Noble, Marlene, editors, 2002, Seafloor geology and natural environment of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary: Marine Geology, v. 181 http://www.sciencedirect.com/
