Delaware II - Day Seven


Another successful day of collecting data on the distribution of large whales in the vicinity of the acoustic array deployed in Stellwagen bank. We even had the opportunity to spend some time with a group of minke whales, which is our target species.

We stopped at several CTD stations (see photo of deployment above). CTD stands for Conductivity, Temperature, and Depth and provides some valuable environmental data to accompany our visual and acoustic data.
