Equipment Used
Scientific Objectives
    Objectives of the cruise are to conduct numerous studies
    to further the scientific knowledge of the MBNMS to enhance
    Sanctuary management and resource stewardship.
Overview Of Operations: Government and academic scientists affiliated
with the MBNMS, Office of Coastal Ocean Resources, NOS, will conduct several
studies aboard the NOAA ship McArthur in two separate legs, the first leg from
April 2 to April 15, 1995, and the second leg from May 9 to May 21, 1995.

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
