Which side scan sonar has a better operating range?
The Starfish 990F has an operating range of 35m (115ft) per channel, while the Starfish 452F and the Starfish 450 have an operating range of 100m (328ft) per channel.
What boat speed will help me take consistent readings?
Before putting the sonar in the water, let the boat build up speed to 1-2 knots. For best results, keep the boat at a constant speed between 1-4 knots. The slower the boat speed, the deeper the sonar will tow, and the higher the resolution image will be. The recommended maximum towing speed is 8 knots (including water current flowing against the boat).
Is anything else required that does not come with my side scan sonar?
In addition to the items included with the side scan sonar system, you will need a Microsoft Windows XP/ Vista/ 7 compatible computer/laptop with 1 free USB port. You will also need a DC battery or a suitably protected AC outlet. The sonar comes with several adaptor cables for DC and AC power options.
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
This year land dwellers everywhere can catch some crisp, detailed images of a rarely seen deep-sea jellyfish, Deepstaria enigmatica , with nothing more than an internet connection. City University of New York (CUNY) professor Dr. David Gruber and a research team caught their surprise encounter with the Deepstaria off the coast of Mexico with the help of a specially designed underwater camera.
“We were not looking for Deepstaria enigmatica . Deepstaria enigmatica found us!” exclaims Dr. Gruber. “On most deep-sea explorations, we are usually the first people to view the dark, submerged seascapes. Our planet is 71% covered by oceans, that's, on average, over 12,000 feet deep.Read More
