Presentation title: Sediment characterization using multiple systems: experimental and numerical results
Summary of the presentation: This paper presents the characterization of sediment properties using multiple hydrographic systems. Different processing techniques are adapted to process at-sea experiment data from a single-beam echosounder (SBES), and a sub-bottom profiler. A sequential processing algorithm is used to estimate the impedance index of surface sediment through processing the SBES backscattering echoes. A hybrid image processing method is used the extract the underlying sediment layering structure from sub-bottom profiling image. A Bayesian framework is adapted to characterize the sediment layering structure and associated geoacoutic parameters. Experimental processing results and numerical analysis suggest the using multiple systems can provide more comprehensive sediment properties than traditional approaches.
