New geophysical instruments!

The laboratory recently acquired several state-of-the-art marine geophysical instruments
including a Klein 5000 v2 high-resolution multi beam side scan sonar (see below
figures), an IKB Technologies seistec boomer, an Applied Acoustics Squid 500 sparker
and an ORE Offshore Track Point III portable acoustic tracking system. These new
instruments will be used to map the seafloor and to determine the stratigraphy and
architecture of sedimentary sequences from the Canadian continental margins.
