Introduction to Multibeam Operation

This course offers an introduction to small boat and large vessel offshore sci- entific and oceanographic research operations. Users will be introduced to all KAUST research vessels, familiarized with the range of sampling and survey devices available, and become self-sufficient in offshore survey operations at KAUST. Deployment, recovery, and data acquisition using a number of offshore research equipment will be covered. PARTICIPANT PROFILE This course is intended for students and research professionals from KAUST, and their collaborators from academia and industry, who are potential users of either KAUST Explorer or RV Thuwal. Please note that this course involves time at sea. PREREQUISITES • Active Badger account

Multibeam surveying is used in offshore and inshore coastal areas to create 3D maps of the seafloor. Additional midwater scanning capabilities allow for gas seep detection, fishery assessment, and shipwreck/seabed structure modeling. This course introduces the EM710 MK2 multibeam echo sounder for technicians and operators, and CTD (Conductivity, Temperature, and Depth) operation and processing to acquire a sound velocity profile. It provides an overview of acous- tic survey principles, multibeam systems, and data acquisition at sea. PARTICIPANT PROFILE This course is intended for students and research professionals from KAUST, and their collaborators from academia and industry, who are planning to conduct offshore bathymetric surveys aboard KAUST research vessels.
