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.

Sewage an Unseen and Ignored Threat to Coral Reefs and Human Health

It’s an open, dirty secret that the ocean is used as the ultimate sewage solution. Each year trillions of gallons of untreated waste are sent to the ocean due to a widespread lack of sanitation technology or infrastructure that needs updating as cities and populations grow. As the impact of untreated sewage on the ocean becomes clearer, attention to the problem and strategies for dealing with it have not kept up. “This is a massive problem and it’s been largely ignored,” said Stephanie Wear, senior scientist and strategy advisor for The Nature Conservancy. Wear has turned her attention to raising the alarm about the effects of sewage on coral reefs, which often loses airtime to other pressing issues like climate change and overfishing.

Lake Superior Algal Blooms Surprise, Highlight Need for More Monitoring

In 2012, for maybe the first time, Lake Superior got scummy. Visitors to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore reported algae washing up on shore around the park.  It was a marked shift for the park, made up of a portion of the Lake Superior lakeshore and nearby islands. The water surrounding the park is cold, clear and typically low in nutrients: a combination unlikely to result in algal blooms. But, in 2012 and again in 2018 after violent storms, major algal blooms—ones observed over multiple days—washed ashore and clogged the beaches with unsightly, scummy algae. Not the usual suspects The algal blooms of Lake Superior are not the algal blooms of warmer, more nutrient-rich lakes like Lake Erie.

Unprecedented Changes are a New Challenge for Lake Tanganyika

*This is part two of a series on changing ancient lakes. See part one, Lake Baikal, here . Ancient lakes are facing a suite of rapid, unprecedented anthropogenic changes. While ancient lakes are spread around the world and vary widely from lake to lake, their incredible age, which can reach into the tens of millions of years, makes them unique resources to science. They host incredible biodiversity and long sediment records. They are vital sources of food and water for millions of people. In a changing world, ancient lakes’ value as scientific and natural resources and the incredibly diverse life they contain is under threat.
