Echosounder, Hydrographic Single Beam
Single beam hydrographic echosounders provide precise measurements of depth to the seafloor. Typically mounted below a ship or ROV, they transmit pulses into the water. These pulses are reflected by the seafloor contours and received by the instrument. The return signal and travel time are used to calculate the depth and position of the seafloor.
Capabilities and system components vary between manufacturers and models.
