ActivityEquipment
1999-045-FAEchosounder
Generic echosounder used to calculate water depth by measuring the time it takes for the acoustic signal to reach the bottom and the echo to return to the transducer. Used when the specific echosounder is either unknown, or more details are given in equipment usage.
2001-005-FASEA SWATHplus-M 234 kHz
SWATHplus is a pole-mounted swath bathymetry sonar that can achieve swath widths of ~5 times the water depth. Owned by Woods Hole and Santa Cruz. (wh-sfm)
