Guy Cochrane conducted ROV video groundtruthing on cruise B-1-00-SC from March 20th to 24th. The operation was part of the data collection for the Nearshore Benthic Habitat mapping project in cooperation with the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary (CINMS), the National Park Service, and other National and State agencies. The Triton ROV, built by the Santa Clara University Extreme Environment Mechanisms Lab (SCREEM), was used. Santa Clara University Mechanical Engineering students operated the ROV on this cruise. The West Coast and Polar Regions Underwater Research Center provided funding for the ROV construction and operation in the Channel Islands. The CINMS R/V Ballena was used for the ROV and sidescan acquisition in the project.
