Equipment Used: Klein 531 sidescan, EdgeTech 424 chirp sub-bottom profiler, Klein 3000, Digital camera, Real Time Kinematic GPS, SWATHplus-M 234 kHz, Sensor - SVP
Information to be Derived:
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Seismic reflection system failed after three days due to software problems (SB Logger). Very frustrating. Swath bathymetry and backscatter from sidescan sonar: 8 days of data collection, 340 km of tracklines, water depths 3-90 m; Seismic reflection profiles: 3 days of data collection, 109 km of tracklines; Sound velocity profiles: 15.
