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
