        abstract:  Cruise RB1201 was led by Chief Scientist Molly Baringer (AOML, NOAA, Miami) as per previous cruises RB0602, RB0701 and RB0901. The three main objectives were: Refurbish the RAPID-26N western boundary moorings Complete an annual CTD section across the DWBC Complete two Florida Current sections for cable calibration
        purpose:  The two primary purposes of the cruise were to complete a regularly occupied hydrography section from the Bahamas to approximately 70?W as part of the AOML Western Boundary Time Series (WBTS) project, and to service the UK operated moorings deployed in the same region. The UK moorings work was lead by Darren Rayner.

            type:  Multibeam Echosounder
            description:  EM 122 multibeam echosounder is a high performance echosounder for deep water mapping with up to 288 simultaneous beams. The EM 122 is designed to perform seabed mapping to full ocean depth with an unsurpassed resolution, coverage and accuracy. The system is cost effective, reliable, and easily operated. The design of the EM 122 is based on more than 50 years of hydrographic experience with echo sounders, sonars and underwater positioning for civilian and military use. It is the latest model in a series of deep sea multibeam echo sounders started with the EM 12 in 1990 and followed by the EM 121 and the EM 120, of which about 40 systems are operational. It uses the same transducers as in the EM 120 but with new electronics and software. Compared with the EM 120 the EM 122 has up to four times the resolution in terms of sounding density through inclusion of multiping capability and more than twice the number of detections per swath. High density signal processing is a major improvement, to keep the acoustic footprint size small even for the outer beams in the swath. In typical ocean depths a sounding spacing of about 50 m across and along is achievable. The achievable swath width of the EM 122 is in the order of 30,000 m, or about 25% more than possible with the EM 120. This is obtained by using long FM chirps which gains about 15 dB in signal to noise ratio compared to CW pulses. The EM 122 is a complete system. All necessary sensor interfaces, data displays for quality control and sensor calibration, seabed visualization, and data logging are a standard part of the system, as is integrated seabed acoustical imaging capability (side scan). Including a higher frequency multibeam echo sounder such as EM 710 with the EM 122 system can give a total system solution meeting the strictest IHO requirements for all water depths. As proven with the EM 120, an accuracy of better than 0.2% of depth in deep waters is readily achievable with the EM 122.

            description:  At 274 ft and displacing more than 3,200 tons, the NOAA Ship Ronald H. Brown is the flagship of the NOAA fleet. Named in memory of a former the U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary who perished in a plane crash in 1996, the ship is a state-of-the-art oceanographic and atmospheric research platform. The Ron Brown, as it is commonly and fondly known, is equipped with an array of advanced instruments and sensors. From its home port in Charleston, South Carolina, the ship has sailed the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans, conducting scientific studies to increase our understanding of the world's marine environment. The Ron Brown carries a complement of 5 NOAA Corps officers, 20 crew members, and can accommodate up to 33 scientists. The crew's primary responsibilities involve day-to-day operations. This includes routine data collection and management tasks related to the ship's mission as a scientific research platform.

                description:  Seabeam 2112 (12 Khz) swath bathymetric sonar system. The system, originally used for high accuracy (Seabeam Classic) charting of the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), is capable of hydrographic charting and seafloor acoustic backscatter imaging in water depths of 50 to 11,000 meters with up to 151 beams. Swath coverage (75 percent of water depth) varies as a function of depth, from 150 degrees at 1,000 meters, to 120 degrees at 5,000 meters, and 90 degrees at 11,000 meters, with a resolution of two degrees. The system regularly operates in 4000+ meters of water but is effective in shallower applications (less than 500m).
