Night moves

Wayne Baldwin, Alex Nichols, and Brian Andrews get the 512i chirp subbottom profiler back on deck! The instrument weights ~500lbs. and requires the ships A-frame to lift it! We only take the chirp out of the water when we need to perform maintenance, transit rapidly, or for weather. We always try to get the chirp back in the water ASAP so we can get back to data collection

Deploying the subbottom profiler

Before deploying the subbottom profiler for leg 2 of the Cape Cod Bay 2019 Survey, Wayne Baldwin, Alex Nichols, and Chuck Worley made sure that the floats are sufficiently inflated. In the relatively shallow waters of Cape Cod Bay we want the instrument towed at water's surface for the resolution of the sub seafloor geology.
