Seafloor Mapping

Healy is equipped with a Kongsberg EM-122 Multibeam Echosounder allowing for 3D mapping of the seafloor.

Not only can the multibeam create a map of the ocean bottom and terrain features by the Knudsen CHIRP 3260 Echosounder can penetrate into the seafloor sediment layers to determine what type of material the seabed consists of.
