Bottom Trawl Survey Protocol Development (HB0706, EK60)

Cruise objectives include: 1) Investigate performance characteristics of new research bottom trawl; 2) Develop standard operating procedures for the NEFSC Bottom Trawl Survey; 3) Test operation and develop protocols for the use of the fish processing system; 4) Identify and address issues prior to conducting calibration activities with the NOAA FRV ALBATROSS IV in September 2007; and, 5) to test manufacturer?s modifications made to the ship?s hydrographic winches.

Search Data
Distribution Formats
  • Kongsberg/Simrad instrument files (.raw or .wcd) (Version: 1)
    • File Specification: Kongsberg/Simrad .raw files are generated by ME70, EK60 or ES60 instruments. They contain power and optionally angular position data with each beam/frequency identified by an independent channel. See the Simrad interface specification manual for further information. The .wcd files are generated by Kongsberg EM302 or EM122 instruments. See Kongsberg documentation for more information.
