Equipment Used
AUV and ROV Sentry
Map submarine landslides as part of a WHOI test cruise of
the hybrid AUV and ROV Sentry
Using the hull-mounted Knudsen 320BR
deepwater echosounder on the Oceanus,
approximately 1065 km of 3.5 kHz sub-bottom data
were collected over the 6 days of the cruise
(see map).  Data were acquired in both Knudsen
proprietary binary format (.keb) viewable only
in the Knudsen Post Survey software and in
standard SEG-Y format for later processing.
Multibeam data was not collected in the survey
area because of technical problems with the
RESON multibeam sonar aboard the Sentry.
Assessment of tsunami hazard to the Atlantic coast.
This is part of a WHOI enginerring
testing cruise.
Map submarine landslides as part of a WHOI test cruise of the hybrid AU
V and ROV Sentry. The full cruise report is being
prepared by Drs. Chris German and Dana Yoerger.
6 days at sea.
1065 kms. of continuous data.
4 stations occupied.
