Course Overview

This six-day 36-lecture course is designed to provide a theoretical and practical background in marine swath survey technology and techniques for hydrographic surveys, continental shelf boundary delimitation, offshore engineering, harbour dredging, fisheries habitat, route survey and scientific research, and provides overviews of:

  • The technology and problems associated with shallow water multibeam surveys,
  • Processing and visualization techniques designed to address the complexities of swath mapping,
  • Constraints on using swath bathymetry to produce the highest quality data.

The Multibeam Sonar training course has, since 1994, been presented 78 times all over the world, to thousands of hydrographers, ocean mappers, and marine scientists. It is taught by four ocean mapping educators and researchers including:
