Which side scan sonar has a better operating range?
The Starfish 990F has an operating range of 35m (115ft) per channel, while the Starfish 452F and the Starfish 450 have an operating range of 100m (328ft) per channel.
What boat speed will help me take consistent readings?
Before putting the sonar in the water, let the boat build up speed to 1-2 knots. For best results, keep the boat at a constant speed between 1-4 knots. The slower the boat speed, the deeper the sonar will tow, and the higher the resolution image will be. The recommended maximum towing speed is 8 knots (including water current flowing against the boat).
Is anything else required that does not come with my side scan sonar?
In addition to the items included with the side scan sonar system, you will need a Microsoft Windows XP/ Vista/ 7 compatible computer/laptop with 1 free USB port. You will also need a DC battery or a suitably protected AC outlet. The sonar comes with several adaptor cables for DC and AC power options.
College professors know that preparing students to be good oceanographers takes a lot of hard work. Getting all the basics down, like the necessary math, chemistry and biology skills, among others, can be difficult on its own. But the real trick comes when all those skills are combined and used to approach actual work in the field. And when students finally get out of the classroom, there’s still more prep, like training them to use the advanced research tools that scientists use nowadays. Still, college oceanography programs today get the job done by working in applied learning components that have students sailing on research vessels or suiting up in scuba gear to get hands-on experience.Read More

However, recent research on arsenic in drinking water suggests otherwise, providing a crystalline example of how vitally important the work and regulations of the EPA really are.Read More
Residents from Imperial County, California are benefitting from a new air quality monitoring network of low-cost environmental sensors that provide real-time pollution data. The county is subject to many air pollution sources such as field burning, unpaved roads, several industrial facilities and its close proximity to the Salton Sea. The City of El Centro, California, which is located in the county, has the fifth-worst air quality in the United States, according to a study by the American Lung Association.
