"High Resolution Site Surveys brings together the full range of seismic and hydrographic site survey techniques, to provide a unified approach to marine high resolution surveying for the first time since the 1970s.". "A chapter is devoted to non-seismic site survey techniques, coring, sea-bed sampling, current metering, gravity and Magnetometer surveys, and a discussion of remotely operated vehicles. "Detailed descriptions are given of high resolution digital seismic survey methods with special reference to 'Bright Spot' analysis and the detection of shallow drilling hazards, particularly shallow gas. "Well-illustrated, with numerous practical examples showing the application of theory in everyday situations, High Resolution Site Surveys is an indispensable guide for the student and practitioner alike."--BOOK JACKET. A final chapter deals with Health and Safety considerations for site surveys and indeed for all forms of seismic survey work.". Differential GPS positioning and its use across the entire range of marine seismic survey work is covered in a separate chapter. Hydrographic 'analogue' search and survey tools are evaluated. These include echosounders, sidescan sonars, swathe bathymetry, autonomous underwater vehicles, pingers, boomers and multi-electrode sparkers.".
