Brings together the full range of seismic and hydrographic site survey techniques, to provide a unified approach to marine high resolution surveying for the first time since the 1970s.
Detailed descriptions are given of high resolution digital seismic survey methods with special reference to "Bright Spot" analysis and the detection of shallow drilling hazards, particularly shallow gas. Hydrographic "analog" search and survey tools are evaluated. These include echosounders, sidescan sonars, swathe bathymetry, autonomous underwater vehicle, pingers, boomers, and multi-electrode sparkers.
Well illustrated, with numerous practical examples showing the application of theory in everyday situations, the book is an indispensable guide for practitioners and students alike.
