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.
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
Millions of Americans rely on well water at home, and in Virginia well water supplies about 20 percent of households. The Virginia Household Water Quality Program , run by Program Coordinator Erin Ling at Virginia Tech , is offering well testing across the state, helping the people who use that well water understand how to keep it safe and healthy. EM spoke to Ling and Carroll County High School STEM-Ag Lab Manager Rachelle Rasco about the program.
“Our audience was traditionally mostly adults and homeowners, so the ability to reach families that are busy with young children more effectively is always in the back of my mind,” explains Ling.Read More
The oil industry is sometimes viewed as an enemy of conservation. But it was the oil industry that enabled the founding of Archbold Biological Station , one of the members of the Organization of Biological Field Stations (OBFS) . Descended from John Dustin Archbold, President of Standard Oil of New Jersey, Richard Archbold used his private wealth to further the cause of field research and education. He became an explorer, aviator and perhaps most importantly, a research associate with the American Museum of Natural History. He established Archbold Biological Station in 1941 after the father of his friend Donald Roebling (from a famous family himself), donated 1,058 acres of pristine land in the heart of Florida to further Archbold’s research dreams.Read More
