Abstract:

The problem of topographic mapping of the ocean floor has been a matter of interest to the Navy and to oceanographers for many years. Throughout this period there has been the need for a method of survey to supplement the normal sounding techniques. The use of acoustic systems which would detect major irregularities in the ocean bottom by virtue of their reflection of sound from explosive charges has been proposed many times and limited experiments in the use of this technique have been made.
