3D Chirp: Underwater Sub-Bottom Profiling at the University of Southampton

The University of Southampton’s 3D Chirp sub-bottom profiler is used for underwater 3D seismic imaging.  The scans it produces are of 3D data volumes, rather than the traditional 2D sections—meaning that the results can be used to reconstruct rich, three-dimensional models of the scanned areas.   These models can be viewed in horizontal, vertical and arbitrary slices, offering a much more robust means to analyse the data.
