Monday, October 14, 2013

The team of Project Contour has already captured stunning underwater photos, videos and acoustic images in the beautiful area of Western Crete. The group has taken on the task of mapping and exploring an area not previously charted or dived upon using today’s high tech underwater imaging or diving equipment.  Searching the area for shipwrecks and other items of archaeological interest the team is providing daily updates and commentary on this remarkable mission of underwater exploration. 

On the survey side, to make the most of the underwater dive missions, it is important to cover a lot of ground in an efficient manner.   Enabling the fast wide swath acoustic imaging needs is the EdgeTech 4600. As noted just days ago by Project Contour, “Our survey vessel is up and running with an EdgeTech 4600, combined bathymetry and sidescan sonar system. The vessel and electronics are now functioning flawlessly, with today being the first real mapping day. Over 100 gigabytes of sea floor information was mapped, mostly at a speed of 4.5 knots.”
