Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Can the StarFish be used in shallow water?
In shallow waters, "ghosting" (image overlapping due to bouncing) may occur. If you have issues with this, Tritech recommends using a larger display range, which should slow the ping rate and allow the echoes to dissipate. A slower ping rate or displaying only one side channel at a time is recommended when using the pole-mount bracket in shallow water to minimize distortion in long-range targets.
How well does the StarFish Sonar work in murky water?
The StarFish does not work well with sediment or excessive aeration (such as the prop-wash produced by a boat propeller).
What can interfere with the Sonar?
High current electrical devices connected to the same power source as the sonar can interfere with the imagery. Underwater, interferences include: extraneous acoustic noises, turbidity, and prop-wash.
What beam width does the 990F Starfish use?
This system offers high resolution side scan sonar with a high frequency 1 MHz CHIRP and a very narrow (0.3 degree) horizontal beam width.
How do I display the data?
The Starfish is intended as a plug-and-play system. The module connects directly to a laptop or field computer via a USB port. The necessary software and cable is included in the rental. The software displays the sonar images in real-time and users can record the scan for playback later. The file can then be viewed again using the included ScanLine Software.

Lake Superior Weather Buoy Provides Valuable New Data

A new weather buoy in a remote part of Lake Superior is providing much-needed weather data to local mariners, the National Weather Service and researchers. Scientists from the Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP), Lentic Environmental Services (LES) and the University of Colorado-Boulder recently deployed the buoy on the lake one mile north of Stannard Rock Lighthouse. SWP gained ownership of the lighthouse in 2015. Because the light was built on a large reef in a remote part of the lake, it is one of the most popular trout fishing and charter boat destinations on the Great Lakes. It has also been the location of a NOAA weather station since 1984 and a Great Lakes Evaporation Network monitoring site since 2008.

Nonprofit kick-starts water data gathering in Nepal Valley

For the first time, citizens of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal have free access to local water data. The data is the result of a water quality monitoring pilot project started by the California-based nonprofit SmartPhones4Water (S4W). SmartPhones4Water, an idea developed by Ph.D. student Jeff Davids and the late Dr. Peter-Jules van Overloop from Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), was started in California in 2014. The goal of the organization is to leverage smartphone technology to gather water data in countries where such data is scarce. The method is simple: a network of local citizens use their smartphones to capture and upload the data to an online server and database.

Riverkeeper Initiative Tackles Water Monitoring, Activism and Education

Celebrating its 25th year, Coosa River Basin Initiative is forming a new water monitoring partnership with the Berry College Environmental Science program. Coosa River Basin Initiative, also known as CRBI , is a grassroots environmental protection organization that works with volunteers to protect and preserve the Coosa River in Rome, Georgia and the surrounding cities. CRBI is a member of the Georgia Water Coalition and the Waterkeeper Alliance. You may be wondering what is so special about the Coosa River. The answer is just about everything. The river is a vital part of the communities surrounding it. “Every river is important but the Coosa River is important in several unique ways,” said Jesse Demonbruen-Chapman, director of CRBI.
