Day 3 – Christian Briseno, Scripps graduate student

After our first deployment test of ZOOPS (an acoustic and optical package built by Jules Jaffe’s team at SIO) on Sunday night, we successfully completed our first vertical profile. Now I have acoustical data to look at and since this is the first time we’ve deployed this high-multi-frequency instrument, I don’t know what to expect.  However, the camera system on ZOOPS has captured beautiful images of little zooplankton at different depths. This is the advantage of an insitu and non-invasive collecting system.
