International Dredging Review
MENUMENU

GeoChirp 3D to the First Institute of Oceangraphy (FIO) in Qingdao China to provide three-dimensional acoustical images of shallow sub-seabed structures and buried objects.

The GeoChirp 3D transfers the principles of conventional 3D reflection seismics used in hydrocarbon exploration to high-resolution chirp sub-bottom profiler technology. Kongsberg said this process has been used in a wide variety of applications including marine archaeology imaging buried wrecks of historical importance in the U.K. marine geology researching landslide mechanisms in Norwegian Fjords and locating buried objects in UXO (unexploded
ordnance) surveys.
