There was just this. Brilliant blue and clear mogul worked as a survey technician on a noah hydrographic survey vessel. They used sonar to collect data from the sea floor. Essentially it's like mowing the lawn. Where you have a fan of information being collected beneath the ship or the vessel and more specifically we use something called multibeam echo sounder. Where it's numerous beams of sound in the waterway. So you get a very high resolution defined picture really of what the morphology is of the seafloor in some parts of the country we also use another technology called side scan sonar which is more of a visual of what the sea floor looks like and this is also based on sound but does not provide any depth information. it's more What physical objects on the sea floor and then of course we use a gps positioning and then integrate information on tides to correct for the water levels as well..

Seattle city council has banned the use of tear gas and pepper spray. At protests by police. They've passed a bill yesterday afternoon. That also limits seattle police use of acoustic weapons or water cannons. It's not a done deal. Though before any restrictions could take effect. They'll have to be reviewed by the department of justice. As part of spd's federal consent decree under the ordinance. Tear-gas would still be allowed.

Amphitheatre is growing public health officials with the grant county health district where the gorge is have now tracked two hundred ten cases of people who went to the watershed music festival. If you went officials are urging you to self quarantine and dacoven test. The brandi carlile show went on as normal this past weekend. But the next two shows at the gorge will require vaccination or a negative cova test result. And stu he's a mom which came as a surprise. Actually we know her. As basketball.

Thank you to everyone who's traveled here to Lawrence. I am deeply grateful and before Senator Warren even made the announcement official be Trump twenty twenty campaign released a statement calling her a fraud saying the American people would reject her socialist ideas, the president himself on Twitter today said Democrats were vicious in their questioning Friday.

I am not discuss my private conversations with resin the United States Republicans claiming the marathon trial was all for show. Meanwhile, in Virginia, the democratic is calling on Lieutenant governor at Fairfax to resign after a second woman accused him of sexual assault. ABC's Zachary quiche has the latest. Fairfax has released a statement essentially saying I did neither this latest unsubstantiated allegation. And he's saying that it's demonstrably false that he has never forced himself on anyone. But again, he is getting a lot of pressure the same folks that were calling for Ralph Northam to step down to resign. Just a week ago are now calling on the Lieutenant governor and governor Ralph north of made his first public appearance today since that press conference where he said he was not one of two people pictured in a racist photo in a yearbook.
