White Papers

As part of the research being conducted, we are constructing more general 'white paper' documents with recommendations for use of data, or particular survey systems in a storm response event.

Object Detection with Phase-Measuring Bathymetric Sidescan Sonar Depth Data [2.3MB]

This document describes the issues involved in detecting objects of different sizes using PMBS data, and the effects of processing methods on this ability.

Storm Response Surveying with Phase-Measuring Bathymetric Sidescan Sonar [2.1MB]

This document describes methods that can be used to optimize the benefits of PMBS systems when considered for storm-response surveying, and trade-offs that can be made to improve response rate.
