collecting bathymetry for South San Francisco Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project
(funding provided by CA Coastal Conservancy)
The survey covers approximately 250 square kilometers (97 square miles) of the
bay and extends south of Coyote Point on the west shore, to the San Leandro
marina on the east, including Coyote Creek and Ravenswood, Alviso, Artesian and
Mud sloughs.  A single-beam, 200 kHz echosounder collected depths at a nominal
spacing of 0.15 m along tracklines with 100 m spacing between lines, resulting
in a total of approximately 20 million soundings (or 2.7 million when thinned
to 1 m spacing).
Class 1 hydrographic survey was collected by Sea Surveyor, Inc. of Benicia, 
Sea Surveyor Inc. utilized three different vessels for surveying different
regions of the bay; (1) a 29 ft aluminum vessel for north of the Dumbarton
Bridge (2) a 25 ft vessel with a fiberglass hull for the shallow-water area
between the Dumbarton Bridge and Coyote Creek (3) a 14 ft aluminum skiff for
the shallow creeks and sloughs.  Equipment used:
INNERSPACE Model 455 survey-grade depthfinder with 3-degree transducer, TSS 
DMS-05 motion sensor, OMISTAR GPS receiver.
