There are three different NOAA cruises:
- “Fisheries research ships perform biological and physical science studies in support of fisheries and marine mammal research.
- Oceanographic and atmospheric research ships perform physical science studies in support of physical oceanography, atmospheric studies, and climate research.
- Hydrographic survey ships scan the coastal sea floor with side-scan sonar and sophisticated bottom sounding systems to locate submerged obstructions and navigational hazards for the creation or update of the nation’s nautical charts.”
