Abstract : This DURIP award funded the acquisition of the basic components of a new, portable, high resolution MCS system. Equipment will allow ONR and NSF-fund researchers to image sedimentary structures in a variety of geologic settings but particularly appropriate for shallow water applications. Major items purchased were the 48-channel hydrophone array, four of the seven depth controllers for that array, and the compressor, which supplies air for the source array.
