Abstract:

The long-term goal is to improve the quality, availability and reliability of seabed information for modellers, decision makers, and units operating at sea. That information includes data on seabed firmness, mobility, composition. The objectives are i Improve the delivery of data on the character of the seabed for use in mine burial prediction, and other naval and scientific endeavours. Particularly, to improve techniques of mapping in the spatially and temporally complicated coastal zone, preferably using unsupervised techniques. ii Improve the delivery of indexes of the reliability for seabed data, with development of appropriate visualizations of uncertainties.
