Pisces – Seep Mapping

In addition to CTDs, core sampling and camera-tow operations, another aspect of our mission includes the mapping of natural hydrocarbon seeps in the vicinity of the Deepwater Horizon site.

The Pisces was designed to be used as a fisheries research vessel, and was outfitted with acoustic gear that is used for finding schools of fish.  It uses sound, which refracts (or bends) when it passes between substances of different densities – such as between sea water and the air contained in the swim bladders of fish. Think of how a straw in a glass of water appears to bend at the water’s surface.  This is due to the refraction of light waves as they pass between the air and the water.  Sound waves work the same way.

Scientist examines seep model

This same equipment can also be used to find gases escaping from the sea floor.  We spent the morning over a plateau in the ocean, very close to Mississippi Canyon, where the oil spill occurred.  We made several passes back and forth over this plateau in a pattern that scientists sometimes call “mowing the lawn.”  Scientists can see the returns from the acoustic equipment on computer monitors, where the seeps show up as vertical lines of dots.

Later on, once we had surveyed the entire plateau, the scientists were able to put the data together to create a three dimensional map of the seeps.  Pretty cool, huh?

  1. this system is very interesting, you can do much more with it than just see the gas leak at sea can do everything
    very good program I congratulate those who managed its development and advise on the issue and seek to disseminate that more can be done with this

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and
    entertaining, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that too few folks are
    speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came
    across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

  60. Are you currently a whole beginner who has just stepped into the important, vast realm of online music production and currently
    completely lost regarding the way you moves about producing your personal
    beats. Depending on the form of music, it is possible to choose your perfect instrument or different instruments to supply your masterpiece.
    If it needs you to read hundreds of pages manual to use it,
    then its definitely a minus point.

  61. Reasonable thoughts, couldn’t agree more here.

  62. Good observation on the topic. Thanks for sharing.

  63. Some solid arguments here. Good to know this.

  64. Really solid points to take here, great stuff.

    Likely even if you get over your initial bout of anxiety and learn to
    manage it well, you may find that your symptoms of anxiety may resurface at different times of your life

    are promoted and advertised as being a important supplement, that you are advised to take.
