Summary
Abstract: Scientists will collect high resolution multibeam and acoustic fisheries data in mid-water depths approximately 30 to 1000 meters so as to continue to characterize seafloor habitats within all U.S. States, Territories, and Commonwealths. The objective of this project is to collect a multibeam bathymetry dataset with 100% seafloor ensonification, along with multibeam backscatter suitable for ... View entire text

Purpose: The purpose of the cruise will be to collect swath bathymetry, acoustical backscatter, ROV optical validation, fishery acoustics, and Slocum Glider deployment in the Red Hind and Mutton Snapper Marine Conservation Districts of St. Croix, USVI.
