6556 thumbnail picture
Graphic illustrating the density of sounding data obtained with single-beam acoustic sounding technology.
6557 thumbnail picture
Graphic illustrating the density of sounding data obtained with multi-beam acoustic sounding technology obtaining 100% bottom coverage.
6558 thumbnail picture
Graphic illustrating bottom coverage obtained with both multi-beam sounding data and sidescan sonar data. These datasets can be combined in many ways to derive much information concerning the nature of the seafloor.
