Picture of the Day for 6 September 2002

BIOMAPER-II is deployed off the stern of the N.B. Palmer.  An extremely high-tech fish-finder, BIOMAPER-II has up- and down-looking transducers at 5 frequencies. The acoustics together with an underwater video microscope system and environmental sensors are used to map and identify zooplankton in the water column throughout the SO GLOBEC study area (Photo by Gareth Lawson).
