Equipment Used
Employ video and still photography, and high-resolution subbottom
profiling to groundtruth and quantify the sidescan sonar mosaic and acoustic
data collected in 1993 of the United States Army Corps of Engineers South Oahu 
Deep Ocean
Dredged Material Disposal Sites. We are attempting to acoustically characterize
the anthropogenic effects on the seafloor and near-surface substrate over the
disposal sites. Through photography and bottom sampling we can quantify the
Sonar Mosaic and acoustics collected in the 1993 field operations.
Nearly 100 hours of underwater video and still photography, and over 200 km of 
high-resolution 3.5 kHz subbottom profiles over the deep ocean disposal sites.
