ROV Multibeam Surveys Various Locations, Worldwide
Since the resolution desired by their client was not possible to obtain from the surface, we installed multibeam sonar on a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). This made it possible to get the multibeam close to the seafloor, even in 7,500' of water. We collected and processed the multibeam data on four projects in the deep areas of the Gulf of Mexico.
Following the success of the initial surveys, We were commissioned to survey areas in the South Pacific near New Zealand and the Bismarck Sea near Papua New Guinea. These surveys were conducted 5,000' below sea level. The data was used to determine deposition and characterization of the material expelled by sub-sea volcanoes. The client was interested in determining if it was economically feasible to mine the materials.
Data from all of the surveys was processed on the marine vessel in preliminary form, and again, following the completed surveys. Detailed reports were provided to the client, along with data in digital and hardcopy formats.
