The best introductory program for learning the principles of side scan sonar and magnetometer surveys. No other program provides such a detailed, step-by-step introduction to these technical subjects. Almost two hours of example data and animations detailing what sonar and magnetometer techniques can and cannot accomplish.
The program answers questions such as:
- At what sonar range can you detect a 55-gallon drum?
- Can you locate a wooden sailing shipwreck with a magnetometer?
- What survey line spacing should you use?
Also includes a guest lecture by Dr. Timothy Bechtel.
Duration: Approximately 100 minutes
"When I got home this evening, I immediately watched both DVDs back-to-back, and they were wonderful! Not only was I able to relate my own experience in side-scan sonar ops to the lessons being presented, I also learned a great deal on magnetometers."
