Seabed mapping tools for Oceans 2025

As part of the Oceans 2025 programme Biogeochemistry and Earth Science Dept are involved in acquiring seabed survey equipment for R/V Calanus. The system comprises a multibeam bathymetry (shape of the seafloor) and side-scan sonar (texture). This will enable detailed maps of the sea floor to be created as part of the NERC-funded programme. The system is due to be ready in the autumn 2007.
