Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Subbottom profilers image below the seafloor using very high frequencies to inform about the near surface sediments in the marine environment. The Geoforce boomer/sparker system is a versatile profiler for imaging sediments in shallow and deep water. Its resolving capabilities are particularly useful for understanding submarine landslides, as shown in this poster presentation.
