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
A few years ago, a pulse flow was released into the Colorado River Delta per Minute 319 of the U.S.-Mexico Water Treaty of 1944. The flow began March 23, 2014 and ended on May 18, 2014, pushing around 130 million cubic meters of water downstream. A few months after that, this magazine checked in with some of the scientists involved in monitoring the effects of the pulse flow. Investigators told us they had deployed more than 100 piezometers to study groundwater levels. Flow trackers were giving them discharge data and measurements on salinity were being gathered with conductivity probes. For gauging the impacts to waterfowl, the researchers were using stereos to send out mating calls while listening for responses. But there was so much more data collection underway than we knew.Read More
It’s pretty easy to find a Lake Erie infographic these days. And that makes sense, because the water body is an incredibly important one. We laid out some of the dynamics that make it that way in our most recent print edition, published in fall 2016 . Those include its shallow depth, a factor that makes it one of the most productive Great Lakes both for fish and algae. Another is the population surrounding Lake Erie. Did you know that the Erie watershed has nearly 12 million people? That makes it the most populated area of the region! In our latest edition, the Lake Erie infographic serves as a nice background for readers who may be unfamiliar with the lake. It also helps to introduce our coverage of Lake Erie’s western basin.Read More
