Launch the Magnetometer
Blair Atcheson (NHHC) and Madeline Roth (NOAA) launch the marine magnetometer. This instrument is deployed in water and towed behind the survey boat to record magnetic anomalies on the seabed. Shipwrecks like Alligator record as large magnetic anomalies due to the large amount of iron ballast on board.
