The role of echo duration in acoustic seabed classification and characterization

Abstract

Acoustic seabed classification with single-beam sounders involves discriminating among bottom types using attributes of their echoes. One attribute that is rich in sediment information is the duration of these echoes, but it needs to be interpreted with care because it depends on water depth, seabed slope and sounder beamwidth, as well as on seabed… (More)
