Seabed Mapping Technologies – SAMS

The combination of side-scan sonar and multibeam bathymetry provides a powerful seabed mapping tool. Seabed morphology and surface sediment, bedform and textural information which can inform interpretations of both habitat and physical environmental conditions on the seafloor.
We use a Klein 3000 dual frequency side-scan sonar.
