Details

The 990F is the ultimate high resolution StarFish side scan sonar for extreme image definition and target detection. Based on the popular and proven 450F design, the StarFish 990F uses high frequency 1MHz acoustic chirped pulses with a 0.3 degree horizontal beam width to produce the most defined and clear images from any StarFish system. With a 35m range capability on each channel (giving 70m total swathe coverage), the StarFish 990F is the ideal tool for high resolution surveys in ports & harbors, academic research, inland waterways such as rivers and canals, and SAR (Search And Recovery/Rescue) operations.

Measuring less than 15 inches long, the StarFish 990F sonar is the smallest towed side scan sonar available. The system is independent of the boat, requiring no fixed installation and making it easy to transport and operate from any vessel. The topside controller connects to any Windows PC or laptop via USB connection for easy operation by a single person. Simply deploy the sonar by hand and tow from your boat to capture and record real-time images of the seafloor below.

UNC Wilmington Uses Advanced Gear To Prepare Students For Oceanography Work

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.

From Alkalinity to Zebra Mussels: Murray State’s Hancock Biological Station Reveals Trends Via Long-Term and Real-Time Environmental Monitoring

“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.

Seeking an Elegant, Affordable Solution to Contamination

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.
