Questions & Answers
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.

The Frozen Frontier: Chasing Data in Antarctica

For Paul Savoy, sailing on the Nathaniel B. Palmer research vessel as part of the United States Antarctic Program (USAP) has been a dream come true, a “mountain top” for his career. “I grew up reading about the age of exploration, and the great polar explorers back in the day. Antarctica is one of the last remaining frontiers, along with the deep ocean and outer space. I was delighted to discover Antarctic research covers all three, with deep ocean research happening on the icebreakers and cosmological experiments at the South Pole. I’ve been applying for a job down here since I was 18. I got shortlisted a few times, but never actually got picked up until I was 32. Now I’m 35, and finally headed to the ice.

The Tiniest Cars: Understanding the Effects of Microplastics on Coral

Like the microplastics she studies, Keiko Wilkins arrived at this point in her life through a long, multi-dimensional, and at times unexpected journey. Today she is a second-year graduate student in the doctoral program at the University of Hawaii , a graduate assistant at Kewalo Marine Laboratory , but her journey began in Pickerington, Ohio, a far cry from the sea. “I always had an interest in water, and I swam competitively,” she recalls. “I knew I wanted to study biology, but did I want to do research or education? So I explored biology further. My academic advisor worked on lakes and I focused on zooplankton in lakes, and changes in their populations. Fascinated by the ocean, I wanted to study it, but in Ohio, the ocean is, of course, out of reach.
