Equipment used

Equipment Usage description Data types Datasets
Chirp 424 Sub Bottom Profiler 1
Ashtech Z-Xtreme DGPS Benchmarks, Navigation 2
GPS Navigation (no data expected)
Knudsen Marine Echosounder 320 Single Beam (no data reported)
F190 DGPS/IMU For single beam bathymetry, the F190 IMU instrument was used for boat motion (heave, pitch, roll) only. Navigation (no data reported)
Choke Ring Antenna The satellite L1/L2 signals were received via the Ashtech choke-ring antennas for the base station and the boat. The Ashtech Z-Xtreme GPS receivers interpret the signals and record the information as binary files. Benchmarks, Navigation (no data reported)
Collapsible Tripod Tripod was used to hold the choke ring antenna upon the benchmark at each static base location. Benchmarks, Navigation, Profiles, Transects (no data reported)
