Scientific Purpose/Goals: Map submarine landslides as part of a WHOI test cruise of the hybrid AUV/ROV SENTRY.
Start Date: 2008-04-18
Start Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
End Date: 2008-04-24
End Port/Location: Woods Hole, MA
Equipment Used: ROV, GPS (wh), Knudsen echo sounder 320B/R
Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Using the hull-mounted Knudsen 320B/R deepwater echo sounder on the OCEANUS, approximately 1065 km of 3.5 kHz sub-bottom data were collected over the 6 days of the cruise (see map). Data were acquired in both Knudsen proprietary binary format (.keb) viewable only in the Knudsen 'Post Survey' software and in standard SEG-Y format for later processing. Multibeam data was not collected in the survey area because of technical problems with the RESON multibeam sonar aboard the Sentry.
