Marine geologist studying a seafloor map produced by the TOBI (Towed Ocean Bottom Instrument) seafloor mapping instrument. TOBI is a sidescan sonar unit that is towed behind a ship. It sends pulsed sound waves towards the seafloor and records the echo-like reflections to create an image of the seafloor. Photographed on board RRS James Cook in the Caribbean, in 2010.
