Multibeam data were also collected aboard the R/V AHI (Acoustic Habitat Investigator), a 25' survey launch owned and operated by the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center in Honolulu, HI. The R/V AHI's survey sensors include a 240 kHz RESON 8101-ER sonar providing bathymetry and imagery data, a TSS/Applanix POS/MV Model 320 which measures position, velocity, attitude and heading, and a Seabird SBE 19 CTD used to measure sound velocity profiles.
Additional data were collected aboard the NOAA vessel Oscar Elton Sette, a 68 m (224') United States National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) research ship. The Oscar Elton Sette deployed an over the side pole mounted survey sensors system including a 240 kHz RESON 8101-ER sonar which measures bathymetry and acoustic backscatter imagery, a TSS/Applanix POS/MV Model 320 which measures time, position, velocity, attitude and heading, and a Seabird SBE 19 CTD used to measure sound velocity profiles.
