In this paper methods for identifying and mapping marine sand sources for beach nourishment are discussed. Our focus is in the use of different types of marine seismic equipment with different frequencies to better interpret subsurface geological deposits. The goal of using different sources is because as mapping sand the resonant source may lose… CONTINUE READING
