Side-Scan Sonar at SAMS

As part of the capital funding from both ARC and NERC Oceans 2025, SAMS has now taken delivery of a Klein 3000 digital side-scan sonar system. The system is rated to 1000m water depth and operates at 100 and 455 kHz frequencies. Recent surveys of Lismore and Loch Etive revealed seabed features such as glacial moraines in spectacular detail. Work will continue throughout the year starting with local surveys in the Firth of Lorn.
