2010 Thomas G. Thompson Sea Acceptance Report

Cruise ID: TN225
Multibeam System: EM302
Dates: October 15-20, 2010

A sea acceptance trial (SAT) was conducted to evaluate the performance of the EM302 multibeam echosounder (MBES) onboard the R/V Thomas G. Thompson in October 2010 off the coast of Washington state. Excellent sea conditions permitted continuous acquisition with all planned survey sites being successfully mapped. It is the intent of this report to document the results of the SAT and to provide recommendations on further improvements that can be made to maximize the performance and accuracy of the system for both bathymetric and acoustic backscatter measurements.
