UNB's vessel Mary O passing over and mapping intake pipelines used to supply salt water to the marine biology tanks at the DFO St Andrews Biology Station. The pipelines were mapped by the combined GGE4053 (Hydro I) / GGE 4072 (Hydro II) classes the weekend of 3-7 Nov 1999.

Mark MacDonald (B.Sc.E. 1994) of Fugro Jacques Geosciences prepares to remove the Reson 8101 multibeam sonar transducer from the Mary O, as Dave Benteau (B.Sc.E.1995), also of FJG, points out the transmitter and receiver arrays to students.
