Nowadays extensive use is made of multibeam echosounders (MBES) for mapping the bathymetry of sea- and river-floors. The MBES is capable of covering large areas in limited time by emitting an acoustic pulse along a wide swathe perpendicular to the sailing direction. The angle and the corresponding two-way travel-time of the received signals are...

Seafloor characterization is important in many fields including hydrography, marine geology, coastal engineering and habitat mapping. The advantage of non-invasive acoustic methods for sediment characterization over conventional bottom grabbing is the nearly continuous versus sparse sensing and the enormous reduction in survey time and costs....
