What is the operating range and beam width of this Starfish?
The StarFish 990F side scan sonar system has a 35 m (115 ft) operating range at 60 degree Vertical Beam Width. This provides a maximum of 70 m total seabed coverage.
What voltage battery do I need to power the sonar?
The Tritech Starfish 990F can be powered by a 9V-28V DC power supply, or by connection to a 110V or 240V AC outlet. Several cables and adapters are included with the side scan sonar system including international AC adapters, 2m cigar-plug DC power lead and a crocodile-clip to cigar-socket DC adapter.
How do I display the sonar? Can it be saved?
The Starfish side scan sonar system is plug-and-play. The 990 Top Box module connects directly to any Windows-based laptop or computer via USB. The included Scanline software displays the sonar image in real-time. The scan can be recorded and stored for later playback.
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.Read More
An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
