What is the operating range and beam width of this Starfish?
The StarFish 990F side scan sonar system has a 35 m (115 ft) operating range at 60 degree Vertical Beam Width. This provides a maximum of 70 m total seabed coverage.
What voltage battery do I need to power the sonar?
The Tritech Starfish 990F can be powered by a 9V-28V DC power supply, or by connection to a 110V or 240V AC outlet. Several cables and adapters are included with the side scan sonar system including international AC adapters, 2m cigar-plug DC power lead and a crocodile-clip to cigar-socket DC adapter.
How do I display the sonar? Can it be saved?
The Starfish side scan sonar system is plug-and-play. The 990 Top Box module connects directly to any Windows-based laptop or computer via USB. The included Scanline software displays the sonar image in real-time. The scan can be recorded and stored for later playback.
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
“Western Kentucky is special because large reservoirs are greatly understudied,” says David White, Professor Emeritus of Biology at Murray State in Kentucky and retired Director of Hancock Biological Station . The station is a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), the Global Lakes Ecological Observatory Network ( GLEON ) and the Association of Ecological Research Centers ( AERC) .
The area has one of the largest densities of major rivers and reservoirs in the world. Hancock Biological Field Station sits on Kentucky Lake, the largest reservoir in the U.S. east of the Mississippi River. The area is where the Cumberland River, Tennessee River, Ohio River and Mississippi River converge.Read More
Dr. Charley Liberko of Cornell College's Department of Chemistry has an idea he's working to bring to fruition.
“Imagine a remote village in an underdeveloped country whose only source of water is a stream contaminated with toxic levels of metal ions such as cadmium and nickel,” states Dr. Liberko. “The villagers take locally available woody plant material, soak it in potash, and heat it up for several days until the wood partially decomposes. They then filter their water through this material to remove the metal ions. When they are done with it, they put the material in a clay pot and heat it up even hotter until the organic matter decomposes completely, leaving the metal ion salts as a residue, safely in the clay pot.Read More
