Abstract:

Seabed classification is the organization of the seafloor and shallow subsurface sediment into classes based on defined characteristics Collins, 1996. Optical and acoustical data processing are two powerful remote sensing techniques for sea floor classification. Our research goal is to explore the potential for the fusion of these two data sets to extend classification capabilities beyond traditional methods.
