Geomorphic parameters, derived from seabed terrain models can be used to classify seabed types. Such terrain models are primarily acquired through the use of multibeam sonars. This paper examines the impact of the configuration of multibeam sonars on the resultant resolvable geomorphology. The sonar design and integration with associated sensors (position, orientation and sound speed) strongly affect the achievable resolution. As data analysts are increasingly distanced from the field acquisition, associated systematic artefacts in the data may be misinterpreted as actual seabed morphology. View this paper
