Airborne operations are underway at RIVET. Below are some photographs of the inlet from the APL-UW test flight on Monday (17:00 – 18:00 local time). Onboard the Cessna 172, we have a dual-beam along-track interferometric synthetic aperture radar, two infrared cameras, and a visible wavelength camera. We will be posting imagery from these sensors as soon as it is available.
In preparation for our quadpod deployement I conducted a quick sidescan survey of the old channel out my pod1 site and the new channel out to my pod2 site. Here is one spot in the newly dredged channel near WHOI (Elgar&Raubenhiemer’s) site 07.
