Dynamic motion residuals in swath sonar data: Ironing out the creases

Academic Article


  • Herein the theory behind the cause for a number of common wobble sources is examined. For the case of shallow water surveys, where the ping period is short with respect to the typical wave period, the wobble signatures can be easily discerned. The differences in the signatures of each of the wobbles are highlighted allowing rapid classification and thus a means of removal of the underlying systematic bias.
