Summary for Field Activity Number 2003-036-FA

Area of Operations: Madison Swanson Marine Reserve, Steamboat Lumps Marine Reserve, West Florida Shelf, Florida, Gulf of Mexico, North America, North Atlantic

Dates: September 24, 2003 to September 29, 2003

Objectives: We used a mini-Phantom ROV and a towed camera sled called Rose Bud (both owned by Florida State University collaborator, Dr. Chris Koenig) to collect video data in the Madison Swanson Reserve to use in conjunction with previously collected sidescan and multibeam data for habitat characterization.

Type of Activity: Photography
videography

Information to be derived: Habitat maps

Summary: Video data were collected at thirteen sites within the Madison-Swanson Reserve. One site was occupied using the ROV and twelve using the towed camera sled Rose Bud, made by Chris Koenig. The sled was towed along the bottom at about 1 kt. for about 3/4 mile at each site, with a forward-looking video camera running continuously. Video quality was very good to excellent at all sites except one (Site 13) where a focusing problem occurred. Original objectives included work in the Steamboat Lumps Reserve, but weather conditions forced the work to be stopped before we could go there. We will attempt to finish the work in November 2003.
