Single-beam Echosounder


Single-beam Echosounder

From website: "Our complete Aquatic Habitat Echosounder System lets you simultaneously acquire submerged aquatic vegetation, substrate, and bathymetry data using Visual Acquisition software and instantly create layered, colored and contoured maps using Visual Habitat software.

  • Map submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV)
  • Map eelgrass and other habitat areas
  • Monitor invasive aquatic weeds
  • Delineate areas of sand, mud, rock
  • Generate contour profiles
  • Shallow water mapping

Mobile survey deployment from small boats or research vessels in lakes, rivers, estuaries, and shallow marine environments."
