Acoustic seabed survey techniques for monitoring Marine SACs: a trial of three systems (ENRR411)

The aims of this project were to:

  • evaluate the ability of different acoustic techniques to consistently discriminate between sublittoral habitats;
  • assess the repeatability of different acoustic mapping techniques;
  • estimate the cost/benefits of such techniques, and;
  • determine points of good practice and quality assurance to inform relevant procedural guidelines in the UK marine SAC’s project monitoring handbook.
