        abstract:  The cruise accomplished the following objectives: marine mammal observations from both the R/V Falkor and the rigid hull inflatable boat along four transects. Collection of photographs from each marine mammal sighting for further identification and individual tracking. Eight EK60 acoustic transects were completed encompassing day and night variation. Nine DIDSON with an attach CTD casts were done along with five additional CTD only casts at specified stations.
        purpose:  The scientific objectives of this cruise are to collect information to describe the physical, chemical, and oceanographic environment as well as observe cetacean activity along the west coast of Hawaii as support for the monitoring component of the NOAA Kona Region IEA. The proposed survey grid will allow comparison of oceanographic features between the Kohala shelf region to the north and the deeper offshore regiono to the south as well as near shore and offshore.

            description:  The Simrad EK60 Scientific Sounder system is a new generation fishery researchtool, based on experience from the EK500. The new electronic hardware is combined with up to date PC processing and Windows operation. The EK60 provides facilities for accurate echo sounding, data storage, data analysis and reporting results. The system communication is through Ethernet, which gives flexibility in the location of the EK60 system units and allows easy access to data from other instruments or stations on a vessel network. A post processing software, BI60, is also included in the EK60 system.

            description:  R/V Falkor is an 82.9 m (272 ft) LOA ship originally built in 1981 in Lübeck, Germany as a fishery protection vessel. The ship went through an extensive refit from 2009 to early 2012, converting the ship to an oceanographic research vessel. Cruising range and endurance are estimated at 8,000 nautical miles and 28 days of steaming (fuel-limited) at a cruising speed of 12 knots. The Falkor is operated by the Schmidt Ocean Institute in support of oceanographic research projects that help expand the understanding of the world's oceans through technological advancements, intelligent observation and analysis, and open sharing of information.

                description:  The Simrad EK60 Scientific Sounder system is a new generation fishery researchtool, based on experience from the EK500. The new electronic hardware is combined with up to date PC processing and Windows operation. The EK60 provides facilities for accurate echo sounding, data storage, data analysis and reporting results. The system communication is through Ethernet, which gives flexibility in the location of the EK60 system units and allows easy access to data from other instruments or stations on a vessel network. A post processing software, BI60, is also included in the EK60 system.

                description:  The state of the art 30 kHz EM 302 deep water multibeam sonar is manufactured by Kongsberg, Inc of Norway. The EM 302 transducers are modular linear arrays in a Mills cross configuration with separate units for transmit and receive. This sonar offers significantly larger swath width, increased data density and resolution. Beam focusing is applied both during reception and transmission. The system has up to 288 beams / 432 soundings per swath with pointing angles automatically adjusted according to achievable coverage or operator defined limits. In multi-ping mode, 2 swaths are generated per ping cycle, with up to 864 soundings. With multi-ping the transmit fan is duplicated and transmitted with a small difference in along track tilt. The applied tilt takes into account depth, coverage and vessel speed to give a constant sounding separation along track. The beam spacing can be adjusted as equi-distant or equi-angular. EM 302 uses both CW pulses and FM sweep pulses with pulse compression on reception, in order to increase the maximum useful swath width. The transmit fan is split in several individual sectors with independent active steering according to accomplish compensation for the vessel movements: yaw, pitch and roll. The high density, high resolution, large coverage and water column capability makes EM 302 an ideal system to explore the sea bed and the water column for detection and characterization of a broad spectrum of features.
