Start Date: 2016-06-06
End Date: 2016-06-08
Equipment Used: Humminbird 898c HD SI Combo (Jetyak), Spectra Precision SP80
Information to be Derived: bathymetry, backscatter, navigation
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Jetyak bathymetric/backscatter survey of the nearshore was completed
Staff: Daniel Nowacki, Marinna Martini, Ann Luppino, Barry Irwin, Sandra Brosnahan, Jonathan Borden
Notes: The RTK-GPS system we are using is a Spectra SP80. We are also using a Hemisphere GPS heading system installed on the jetyak.
Entries for this field activity are based on entries from Field Activity 2016-006-FA.
Platform used for sidescan/bathymetry/navigation is the USGS modified kayak named the jetyak.
