Principal Investigator(s): Christopher Sherwood
Information Specialist(s): Ellyn Montgomery
Data Type(s): Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sonar: Sidescan, Sonar: Single Beam
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Jetyak operations to map Sandwich Town Beach nearshore
Start Port/Location: Sandwich, MA
End Port/Location: Sandwich, MA
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: Jonathan Borden, Sandra Brosnahan, Barry Irwin, Ann Luppino, Marinna Martini, Daniel Nowacki
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.
