Field Activity 2015-320-FA

Identifier 2015-320-FA
Alternate names 15BIM05, 15BIM06, 15BIM07, 15BIM08
Purpose Collect single beam bathymetry along the Louisiana coastline from Point Au Fer to Raccoon Island, Louisiana.
Location Point Au Fer, LA
Summary Single beam bathymetry lines (280 = 1.068 kilometers (km));sub-bottom profiles (38) ; sound velocity profiles (41)
Info derived Single beam bathymetry and sub-bottom profiles, if time permits.
Comments Sub FANs: 15BIM05 = Sallenger - SBB + chirp 15BIM06 = TwinVee - SBB 15BIM07 = WVR1 (White = Shark) - SBB 15BIM08 = WVR2 (Blue = Chum) - SBB
Projects
Platform
Twin Vee (Jabba Jaw)
22-ft Twin Vee This boat has a carrying capacity of up to 1500 pounds and up to 7 people and a shallow draft (9 inches empty). This boat's cat hull design results in a smoother ride in choppy water, at the expense of a slightly deeper draft. This boat is powered by two Yamaha 70hp motors.
