Acoustic testing methods to map laminar
- 01 January 2012
With the possibility of organization wanting to develop the market for the exploitation of marine algae in eastern Quebec, CIDCO sees the relevance of these agencies to provide assistance to an assessment of biomass.
Several methodological strategies are possible using sonar technology and cartographic processing using geographic information systems (GIS).
The objective is to identify and classify algae present on the seabed or in the water column, to assess biomass and produce a map of their dispersion.
