Details

StarFish 450F is an affordable, high-performance towed side scan sonar that produces spectacular images of the seabed. The compact, hydrodynamic, full body three-fin design improves stability of the sonar while being towed, helping to further improve the quality of images it produces.

Utilizing advanced digital CHIRP acoustic technology developed from the professional underwater survey industry, StarFish 450F can view targets at longer ranges without any loss in image quality. It competes with many larger commercial systems, yet the intuitive software makes it very easy to use.

Measuring less than 15 inches long, the StarFish 450F sonar is the smallest towed side scan sonar available. The system is independent of the boat, requiring no fixed installation and making it easy to transport and operate from any vessel. The topside controller connects to any Windows PC or laptop via USB connection for easy operation by a single person. Simply deploy the sonar by hand and tow from your boat to capture and record real-time images of the seafloor below.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
What is the depth rating of the Starfish?
All of the Starfish Side Scan Sonars have a depth rating of 50 meters (164 feet)
What is the range of this sonar?
The Starfish 450F Side Scan Sonar has a maximum acoustic range of 100 meters (328 feet) on each side of the towfish/sonar head with at vertical beam angle of 60 degrees.
What is the max depth to get reasonable images returned? Will this generate decent imagery in the 250-300' depth range?
The StarFish 450F imaging is limited to 50 m (164 ft) depth below the sonar. As the sonar sits at about 5 m below the surface when towed, quality imagery is only available at depths shallower than 180 ft.

UNC Wilmington Uses Advanced Gear To Prepare Students For Oceanography Work

College professors know that preparing students to be good oceanographers takes a lot of hard work. Getting all the basics down, like the necessary math, chemistry and biology skills, among others, can be difficult on its own. But the real trick comes when all those skills are combined and used to approach actual work in the field. And when students finally get out of the classroom, there’s still more prep, like training them to use the advanced research tools that scientists use nowadays. Still, college oceanography programs today get the job done by working in applied learning components that have students sailing on research vessels or suiting up in scuba gear to get hands-on experience.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality's Water Quality Division

With an average rainfall of only 12.5 inches per year and a population that's growing faster than the country's , Arizona is a state that faces unique challenges, especially when it comes to clean, safe water. The Water Quality Division of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) protects and enhances public health and the environment by monitoring and regulating drinking water. And although they make use of the latest scientific methods and new technology, given the current state of Arizona's water system, they also rely upon low-tech equipment and cooperation from members of the community to monitor water quality in the state. Team members in the Groundwater Protection Program work to sample, test and characterize groundwater quality in all 51 of Arizona’s basins.

Latest Satellite and Eddy Covariance Data Shows Vulnerability of Trees to Drought

William Anderegg, assistant professor of biology at the University of Utah, has spent years studying drought-stricken trees all over the world. As climate change is expected to cause increased drought severity in the future, the work of Anderegg and his colleagues becomes increasingly important. In a previous interview for the Environmental Monitor , Anderegg found that a tree’s hydraulic safety margin was the best indicator of whether a tree would survive drought. The hydraulic safety margin is an expression of how the tree reacts under drought conditions, where there is very little water being pulled up the tree’s transport system and air is being pulled up instead. “It’s like a heart attack for the tree,” he noted.
