MetadataShow full item record
This manual refers to the use of multibeam or interferometric echosounders (referred herein as just multibeam or MBES) to conduct surveys of seafloor bathymetry and backscatter that can be used to derive maps of geomorphic features and habitats. It does not mandate use of a specific multibeam acoustic system (either an interferometric or beamforming multibeam). The examples given herein refer to Kongsberg systems merely as an exemplar of the procedure to be conducted. Similarities can be drawn from these examples to any particular MBES system being employed on the survey......
