Equipment Used
Multibeam system
Multibeam mapping and AUV surveys of northern Georges Bank.
Information to be Derived
Habitat maps
Cruise purpose was to test the capability of the new MIT AUV
to detect the invasive tunicate Didemnum on gravel habitats using
photography.  Photos collected are curated at MIT Sea Grant, Boston,
MA.  Other purpose was to test the ME70 swath bathymetric system on
the Bigelow.  Total of 110 sq. km of seabed mapped in study area.
ME70 imagery curated at NOAA NMFS, Sandy Hook, NJ.
10 days at sea.
Data types: Multibeam imagery
bottom photography from AUV
Navigation technique: gps

There will be a port call midway in the cruise to exchange
personnel, probably at Coast Guard base in Boston.
