Description

Handbook of Seafloor Sonar Imagery (Wiley-Praxis Series in Remote Sensing).

Handbook of Seafloor Sonar Imagery (Wiley-Praxis Series in Remote Sensing). ISBN 13: 9780471962175.

Images of the Earth's seafloor acquired by acoustic (sonar) systems are usually difficult to interpret because of their nature and because of the complex and varied geological processes at play. In recent years, there have been huge advances in acoustic remote sensing and its applications.

The book also discusses sonar imagery interpretation, particularly the recognition of image anomalies and their .

The book also discusses sonar imagery interpretation, particularly the recognition of image anomalies and their correction. The many real-life examples of errors and anomalies, and how they can be detected and corrected, draw upon the authors’ wealth of experience of at-sea acquisition of sonar data, its processing and interpretation. Images of the Earth’s seafloor acquired by acoustic (sonar) systems are usually difficult to interpret because of their nature and because of the complex and varied geological processes at play.

Handbook of Sea Floor Sonar Imagery will enable the end user with images of the sea floor, acquired by acoustic systems, to interpret them correctly. Blondel, Philippe; Murton, Bramley J. The major use of the book is interpretation of sonar through worked examples, and for new comers to sonar imagery there is reference to examples of terrain types. Published by Wiley.

Images of the Earth’s seafloor acquired by acoustic (sonar) systems are usually difficult to interpret because of their nature and because of the complex and varied geological processes at play. In recent years, there have been huge advances in acoustic remote sensing and its applications. This unique and timely handbook provides end-users, as well as specialists, with a single source of reference covering all stages from data acquisition to interpretation and decision-making. Drawing on their first hand experience of state-of-the-art sonar systems, the authors review the different types of sonar available and the various stages of data processing. They then focus on the distinct types of geological environments present in the deep ocean in the vicinity of mid-ocean ridges and geological plate boundaries — volcanic structures, tectonic structures and sedimentary processes — each illustrated with representative sea floor images, detailed reasoning and interpretations. Each chapter is followed by a short bibliography covering the main references, and an extended bibliography appears at the end of the book. The book also discusses sonar imagery interpretation, particularly the recognition of image anomalies and their correction. The many real-life examples of errors and anomalies, and how they can be detected and corrected, draw upon the authors’ wealth of experience of at-sea acquisition of sonar data, its processing and interpretation. The combination of theory and practical experience, extensive use of real sonar images, and explanations of the reasoning behind the final interpretation, all contribute to make this book a comprehensive reference work for users of acoustic imagery, ranging from the novice to experienced marine geologists. Readership: Professional scientists involved with the acquisition, processing, analysis and interpretation of marine sonar images, for applications in marine geology and deep sea studies. Scientists, engineers and surveyors in industry involved in hazard assessment for cable surveys, the placement of oil platforms, pipelines and wellheads. The book will also serve as a useful reference work for university undergraduate and postgraduate students studying in remote sensing, marine science, oceanography, geology, geophysics, environmental science and related subject areas.
