Equipment Used
The tripod was deployed on the bay floor for 11 days, measuring water
currents and other oceanographic parameters and recording thousands of rotating
sidescan images to track the movement of underwater sand dunes. The project is
part of a larger study designed to reveal how sediment and pollutants move
through San Francisco Bay.
Expected date of recovery 12/17/97.
Instruments in geoprobe instrument package:
4 marsh-mcbirney electromagnetic current meters (1/2 hr. measurements),
2 temperature sensors (1/2 hr. measurements),
1 parascientific pressure sensor (1/2 hr. measurements),
5 optical backscattering sensors (1/2 hr. measurements),
3 led transmissometers(1/2 hr. measurements),
1 bottom-looking altimeter (1/2 hr. measurements),
1 upward-looking acoustic doppler profiler (continuous 10 minute averages),
1 rotating sidescan sonar (1/2 hr. measurements),
1 ocean sensors ctd (5 minute measurements)
