Abstract : A new sonar system has been constructed and successfully fielded. The system, designated as the Accelerated Benthic Acoustic Measurement System (XBAMS), is an autonomous, bottom mounted, circularly scanning sonar that permits remote observation of benthic biological and physical processes over a large area (100 m diameter circle) and long times (weeks to months) in the littoral zone.
