Geophysical surveys efficiently map seabed morphology and subbottom stratigraphy - often resulting in substantial project cost savings. Remote sensing systems and technologies utilized by OSI geologists and geophysicists include:

  • Subbottom seismic reflection
  • Subbottom seismic refraction - towed and bottom resting
  • Acoustic sediment classification
  • Ground penetrating radar
  • Side scan sonar
  • Marine magnetometers and gradiometers
  • Underwater photographic and video systems
  • Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV)
