        abstract:  The cruise investigated how complex fine-scale structure and processes in coastal waters dominated by pulsed-river plumes control the exposure, impacts, and ecosystem recovery from offshore spills like the Deepwater Horizon release of 2010. Data were collected along three transects in the northern Gulf of Mexico in water depths from 10 metres to 60 metres using the Reson 7125 multibeam sonar and a In Situ Ichtyoplankton Imaging System (ISIIS). Stations along the corridor completed CTD casts, trace metal testing, water chemistry, FlowCam analysis, radio-isotopes testing, and productivity experiments.
        purpose:  CONCORDE is the CONsortium for oil spill exposure pathways in COastal River-Dominated Ecosystems (CONCORDE). It is one of 12 research consortia funded by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) to conduct scientific studies of the impacts of oil, dispersed oil and dispersant on the Gulf?s ecosystem and public health during 2015-17.

            description:  The new generation SeaBat 7125 builds on the field experience and feedback from many users around the world and brings unparalleled resolution and installation flexibility. The system is available in three separate configurations; one designed specifically for installation on small survey vessels and a 6000 meter depth rated system for either ROV or AUV use. Each of these configurations provides superlative data quality and ease of use over depths from 0.5 to 500 meters. Special emphasis has been put on maximizing operational efficiency and features such as variable swath width and roll stabilisation combined with a high ping rate and excellent data quality. The SeaBat 7125 provides a swath up to 165 degrees and uses up to 512 beams in operator selectable modes.

                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.
