High-resolution bathymetric simulations based on Kirchhoff scattering theory and anisotropic seafloor modeling


The bathymetric resolution of the seafloor map generated from multibeam or sidescan echo-sounder systems can be improved with various signal processing methods. In order t o evaluate the accuracy and resolution performance of such techniques, we developed a realistic sonar simulation and seafloor modeling environment by merging the Kirchhoff scattering… (More)
