Principal Investigator(s): Walter Barnhardt
Information Specialist(s): Seth Ackerman
Data Type(s): Imagery: Photo, Imagery: Video, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Sampling: Geology
Scientific Purpose/Goals: To collect geologic framework information from inner shelf and inlet (where possible) for coastal-change studies
Start Port/Location: Bass River, NJ
End Port/Location: Bass River, NJ
Start Date: 2018-10-21
End Date: 2018-10-26
Equipment Used: SeaBOSS, DGPS, SeaViewer 6000 HD Sea-Drop video camera, GoPro camera
Information to be Derived: surficial geology, etc
Summary of Activity and Data Gathered: Occupied ~70 sites over 2 days (Oct 22-23, 2018 - JD 295-296) aboard the R/V Petrel. SEABOSS with SeaViewer HD video camera and 2 GoPro cameras (one oblique down on miniSEABOSS as usual, another on arm extended out and down-facing. GoPro was time synced regularly to UTC using Camera Studio software on AckBookPro. Calibration photos were taken to ensure that GoPros and Video were synced. Navigation was DGPS from the R/V Petrel (Hemisphere Vecor VS330 (WGS 84)). Antenna aft stbd side on wheelhouse ~3 meters to the deployment point. Logging Petrel DGPS to DataBridge CF car; and into ArcMap GPS via Plugable usb to serial adapter on AckBookPro (parallels Win10) - saving 1 second point as Esri shp. Offset to the sampler deployment spot (from GPS antenna to the extended block 18 feet aft; 5 feet port). This offset is NOT accounted for in the SEABOSS position.
