Equipment Used
Test new SEA Submetrix transducer electronic modules (TEM) upgrades
Information to be Derived
Sea Floor Map.
Ran a successful test of the TEM upgrades for the USGS 234 kHz SEA
Submetrix system.  Noted improved backscatter dynamic range when compared with
the older modules, which in turn contributed to better interferometric solutions
for the swath bathymetry. Collected 6 lines of Submetrix 2000 interferometric
sidescan, along with 3 casts for sound velocity profiles.  These data overlap
with a data set collected by Benthos, Inc., in which they ran the new C3D
system, a interferometric sidescan that Benthos is marketing.  Will compare
results from both systems. 20 km continuous data.
Navigation Techniques: DGPS
