Abstract:

An acoustic sediment profiler is described that utilizes short 50 kHz pulses to achieve a high range resolution. In trials in shallow water, penetration depths of about 9 m and resolution of about 25 cm were obtained. Suggestions for improvements and for its adaptation to a deep water version are included.
