Our Marine Survey Began​!​

Today we began our survey! We acquired CSEM data, as well as multi-beam seafloor and water column data along a survey crossline. The Kona coastline has a fair amount of boat traffic, which made it challenging for our chase boat to clear the survey track for the Huki Pono and protect our Porpoise array at the same time. All things considered, we had a long and hectic day but fairly productive.
