Long Stem ForwardScan™ Transducer w/Sleeve Plug & Fairing Block

ForwardScan™ Sonar is the ideal forward looking two dimensional echo-sounder for all power and sail boats that want safety and peace of mind that comes with knowing the depth of the water ahead of the boat. Unlike other Forward-looking sounders, the ForwardScan™ can display bottom imagery up to 8 times the current depth, it integrates with your onboard NS evo2 or Zeus Touch providing full control at any operating station

Provides water depth information in front of the boat to allow boaters to confidently navigate shallow or poorly charted waters Look ahead view is capable of up to 8 times the depth however the normal operating range is 4 to 5 times the depth. Ex 10' depth would provide a 80' forward view Operates at 180kHz to reduce interference from tradition 200kHz echo sounders. Transmits and receives up to ten times faster than previous forward looking systems providing a real time update. Easy Auto Ranging: Auto forward range and auto depth range default options update the range scales to best suit the viewing of the depth in front of the boat with no button pushing. The deeper the depth range the further forward range. The shallower the depth range the shorter forward range System Overview Unlike other forward looking sonar solutions this is fully integrated to the network allowing control and viewing of the ForwardScan information on multiple displays simultaneously and even via GoFree on a tablet.

Network Options:
Connect directly to Sonar Hub or NSS evo2. ForwardScan Sonar view available on the following displays NSS Evo2, NSO Evo2, Zeus2 Unique Selling Point Look way beyond the bow of your boat for confident navigation of shallow water or poorly charter areas Complete integration maximizes viewing and control Easy to view and operate with unique Bottom Coloring and Auto Scaling Proven installation using a standard 2" stainless thru-hull fitting which allows for a transducer plug design install and removal while boat is in water Flexible networking with direct connect to SonarHub or NSS Evo2.

The following current products will require free software updates to be compatible with the ForwardScan transducer which will be available on the Simrad and B&G support website near availability of the ForwardScan transducer: NSS Evo2 Zeus 2 SonarHub.

Figuring Out How Microplastics Move From Mussels To Fish

Microscopic beads and fabrics float in our waterways, get ingested by fish and other creatures, and impact the environment in lots of negative ways. But despite that knowledge, there is little we know about how these microplastics first enter aquatic food webs. In a pilot study, researchers at the University of Notre Dame are studying the dynamics of just how microscopic plastics are first transferred from filter feeders to fish. Their investigation is using asian clams and sculpins to pinpoint the interactions underway. The researchers originally wanted to use round gobies, a prolific invasive fish in Lake Erie.

Imaging Foraminifera Shell Formation Clarifies Sediment Samples

In sediment samples taken throughout the world’s oceans, researchers key on shell fragments from single-celled organisms to learn more about the history of an area’s chemistry. But surprisingly little is known about how these organisms form their shells in the first place. In a bid to alleviate some uncertainty, scientists at the University of Washington have imaged some of the actions that take place. As a starting point, the researchers have zeroed in specifically on the time period during which single-celled organisms first start to form their shells. The researchers caught juvenile foraminifera by diving in deep water off Southern California. They then raised them in the lab, using tiny pipettes to feed them brine shrimp during their weeklong lives.

ROV Yogi Gets Underway In Yellowstone Lake

Earlier this year, we covered a work in progress to build a new remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for Yellowstone Lake . It was just an idea back then, but the exploratory craft has since become a reality thanks to some determined researchers and a Kickstarter campaign that reached a goal of $100,000 in funding. Full cost for building the vessel was around $500,000, but crowdfunding a portion of it allowed officials at the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration (GFOE), a nonprofit engineering group, to spur public interest. In a similar vein, they named the completed ROV “Yogi” in honor of the famous fictional comic book character devised by Hanna-Barbera who gets into trouble at Yellowstone National Park.
