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.

Rising Atmospheric CO2 Levels Affecting Cephalopod Behaviors

Carbon dioxide, CO2, is a waste product for animals, including humans. That means that too much of it can be dangerous. In humans, excessive exposure to CO2 can kill, but in lesser amounts it can also affect the blood's pH level, causing acidemia. Acidemia can cause nerve damage , including hallucinations, delirium, and seizures. Far less is known about the subtler effects of CO2 on cephalopods, but this is in large part because far less is known about cephalopods, generally. However, new research from scientists at James Cook University (JCU) in Australia reveals that rising levels of atmospheric CO2 may cause strange behavioral effects in cephalopods—effects that are likely to be dangerous to them.

Buoy Data Powers Muskegon Lake Hypoxia Research

Sixty years ago, the famous ecologist George Evelyn Hutchinson wrote, “A skillful limnologist can possibly learn more about the nature of a lake from a series of oxygen determinations than from any other chemical data.†Since then, oxygen measurements have only grown more relevant as the problem of hypoxia expands in lakes, oceans and estuaries across the globe.   But ecologists’ ability to measure oxygen has grown too. When Hutchison wrote that in 1957,  the “series of oxygen determinations†produced by a data buoy like the one floating on Muskegon Lake in Michigan was unthinkable.

Long-Term Monitoring Aids Scientists Studying Sea Star Wasting Mystery

Scientists working to solve the mystery of Sea Star Wasting Disease—and to learn more about the possible keystone species Pisaster ochraceus , the ochre sea star—are reaping the benefits of long-term monitoring of the species along the West Coast. Dr. Melissa Miner , a UC Santa Cruz researcher in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, spoke with EM about her two decades of work with the Multi-Agency Rocky Intertidal Network and her recent efforts surrounding the ochre sea star. Keeping an eye on intertidal species In 2013, people began to notice that sea stars all along the West Coast were in the grip of a strange disease. The stars exhibited lesions and quickly succumbed, deteriorating and wasting away.
