Part of the Acoustical Imaging book series (ACIM, volume 13)


The exploration and development of offshore oil and gas resources at increasing water depths challenges present-day technology. In order to make deep-water operations feasible and cost efficient, the use of unmanned, remotely controlled operations and sensing becomes increasingly attractive. Because of the better transmission and penetration strength compared to optic waves, acoustic waves offer interesting capabilities for the underwater remote sensing and transmission of information.
