Deep Maggie

A WHOI-MISO Towed Digital Camera frame containing a deep-towed magnetometer system— otherwise known as the TowCam "Deep Maggie"— takes a breather on the WHOI dock in August  before being loaded onto the R/V Sikuliaq. The system will be used by Masako Tominaga from Michigan State University and WHOI geologist Maurice Tivey in the western Pacific Ocean this winter. In conjunction with the AUV Sentry, Deep Maggie will be used to collect near-bottom magnetics profiles of some of the oldest areas of the ocean.
