Abstract:

An evaluation of an impulse radar sounding system for profiling bottom topography in weed-infested waters is discussed. Field results are presented comparing radar profiles of water depth with those obtained with a conventional acoustic depth sounder. It was found that the impulse radar system could profile freshwater depths through dense vegetation, whereas the acoustic depth sounder could not.
