Side-scan Sonar Data, 2014-2015, Gateway National Recreation Area

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

The side scan sonar survey was done simultaneously with the bathymetry swath survey and used an EdgeTech Model 4125 Towfish bow-mounted from Lookdown at 400 and 900 kHz. The 4125 Towfish utilizes EdgeTech’s Full Spectrum CHIRP technology to produce higher resolution images than a non-CHIRP system. EdgeTech Discovery Software was used to acquire the side scan sonar data using the JSF format at a resolution of about 2.3 cm. All JSF files collected using EdgeTech’s Discover Software were processed using John Gann’s Chesapeake Technology SonarWiz5. Dimensions of contacts should be considered accurate to +/- 30% of the measured dimensions. This system also records the direct arrival intensity data.
