The hydrophones are here!

Lab Note #2

Hello again!

Not to long ago, I received the hydrophones. I was able to purchase two hydrophones (instead of one) that are much smaller, but have the same capabilities as the larger one and were half the price! 




One of phones was placed at The Aquarium of the Pacific, where I will be monitoring the Giant Sea Bass they have in their tank and the other day I was able to deploy the other at the field site in Catalina!

For the field, I had to create a stand/anchor to hold the phone in place, which was made out of 35lbs of concrete and a steel rod. 



Once we got the phone out to the site, we used lift bags to lower it into the water and and sand screws to help secure it. 

 

Thank you all again for all of your support and help to get me to where I am today. I wouldn't have been able to do this research with you out all of you!
