The US Academic Research Fleet is moving to Marine Facilities Planning (MFP) for scheduling initially and eventually cruise planning.
For all NEW or RESUBMITTED Projects/Ship Time Requests, go to https://mfp.us and create a new SME.
Some STRs for projects starting in 2022 and beyond have already been moved to Marine Facilities Planning (mfp.us).
Check your MFP Science Portal for any projects that might already be moved.
If you need to make edits to projects that begin in 2022 and beyond, please contact email@example.com for assistance.
Be sure to indicate the Project and STR IDs that you would like to edit.
For more information on getting into MFP, see the More Information button below.
Dynamic positioning is used to hold station position and maintain wire safety. Multibeam is used only in "raw" mode to inspect bathymetry along track and near stations. Centerline depth to bottom is, however, required along track and at stations. Ship must be swab-tested to verify lack of contamination for 14C and tritium. There is usually one lab van and 1-2 storage vans for this program.
