Kongsberg/Simrad EM710 multibeam echo sounder (70kHz - 100kHz)   

Description

The Kongsberg EM710 is designed for acquiring high-resolution, relatively shallow bathymetry and backscatter data on the continental shelf. The minimum acquisition depth is from less than 3 m below its transducers, and the maximum acquisition depth is approximately 2000 m, somewhat dependant upon array size. Across track coverage (swath width) is up to 5.5 times water depth, to a maximum of more than 2000 m.

Purpose

A very high resolution seabed mapping system with a flexible configuration for acquiring bathymetry and back scatter data down to 2000m.
