Recent South Eastern Alaska and the Cook Inlet surveys conducted by TerraSond have included single beam and multibeam bathymetric surveys, side scan sonar surveys, magnetometer and gradiometer surveys, as well as sub-bottom acoustic profiling utilizing CHIRP or Boomer technologies.

TerraSond say that its highly trained and experienced team also performs oceanographic monitoring, Acoustic Doppler Current Profiling, sediment and water sampling from the Luna Sea. Their comprehensive capabilities include precision geospatial solutions on land, on water and even sub-sea using a combination of differential GPS, tide gauges, and acoustic positioning systems.
