GEOPHYSICAL EXPLORATION & SEAFLOOR ENGINEERING
Volume 51, No. 10

COVER
Sample Landsat satellite imagery, taken in August, shows the complex patterns formed as turbid, low-salinity outflow from the Mackenzie River enters the saline water of Mackenzie Bay in the Canadian Beaufort Sea. As part of an environmental assessment, ASL Environmental Sciences Inc. (Victoria, Canada) used Landsat imagery to identify the steepest plume frontal zones, the locations of which were relayed to a research vessel to guide a water sampling program. For more information on environmental monitoring via satellite, see page 15. (Landsat imagery courtesy of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and U.S. Geological Survey.)

COVER
The USS Independence (LCS 2) during builder’s trials last year. The U.S. Navy said in October that competition between Northrop Grumman Corp. (Los Angeles, California) and Lockheed Martin Corp. (Bethesda, Maryland) for the littoral combat ship (LCS) contract has brought down prices, prompting the Navy to seek congressional authorization to award each bidder a 10-ship block buy. If authorization is not given, the Navy said it would select a single bidder. (Photo courtesy of Dennis Griggs/General Dynamics)

COVER
The SeaBotix Inc. (San Diego, California) LBV300 HD fly out system pictured off Catalina Island, California, providing remote inspections and backup to the SEAmagine Hydrospace Corp. (San Diego) Deep-C host submersible, owned and operated by Mike Caplehorn of Australia. Since the primary use of the LBV is to film in and around shipwrecks, the ability to cut the LBV tether should Deep-C be irreversibly entangled was critical to achieving American Bureau of Shipping class for the submersible. The system operates down to 300 meters.
