  • We mapped the acoustic backscatter characteristics of the lake floor of western Lake Erie based on 1300 line-km of 100 kHz sidescan-sonar data collected by the Ohio Geological Survey and the U.S. Geological Survey from 1991 to 1993. Acoustic backscatter was divided irto 6 categories: low backscatter, intermediate backscatter, high backscatter, high backscatter-ripple fields, high backscatter-bedrock, and high backscatter-dumping grounds. We correlated these categories with previously published… CONTINUE READING
