Equipment Used
To complete collection of seafloor video data begun on REEFS1 cruise
#03036 in September 2003.  Video data were collected using Sony mini-DV camera
on a towed camera sled.  These data will be used in conjunction with existing
sidescan-sonar, multibeam, sedimentologic, and biologic data to create habitat
Information to be Derived
Habitat maps.
This cruise was a continuation of cruise number 03036, which was
aborted because of bad weather and ship s engine problems.  Although we had the
FSU ROV onboard we did not use it.  All data on this leg were collected using 
the towed camera sled Rose Bud carying a Sony mini-DV camera with lasers spaced
20 cm apart and the Helios underwater video lighting system.  As on Leg 1, the
sled was towed at about 1 kt for 45 minutes.  Sites were numbered consecutively
with Leg 1, beginning with Site 14 and ending on Site 28.  Sites 14 - 25 were in
Steamboat Lumps Reserve; Sites 26-28 were in Madison Swanson Reserve.  Data
quality was very good to excellent except at Site 15 which was very poorly
focussed. 15 Stations Occupied.
Navigation Techniques: GPS (hand-held Garmin). Platform from
Florida Aquatic and Marine.
Got Help? For 03050, we would appreciate any information on -- analog materials, contract, days at sea, dive count, funding, kms of navigation, national plan, NGDC Info, owner, project number, publications, scanned materials, seismic description, station count, station description, submersible, tabulated info.
