Workpackage 6

Device development and implementation

Task 6.1: Calibration of acoustic sensors to provide the physical pressure amplitudes

Task 6.2: Implementation of high-incidence-angle snippet sidescan data by MBES and adaption of data formats

Task 6.3: Development and testing of a new parametric sub-bottom profiler with increased frequency range and increased insonified volume without losing resolution

Objectives of workpackage 6:

  • Calibration of MBES and sub bottom profiler (SBP) to obtain quantitative physical pressure values
  • Development of calibrated MBES with improved sidescan-like backscatter at high incidence angles
  • Development of a novel, multi-frequency and high resolution SBP specialized for discrimination of near surface substrates
