Innomar, Germany, has received more than 20 proposals from scientific institutions in nine European countries to utilise their SES-2000 light plus combined sub-bottom profiler and side-scan sonar system. The three winners have been selected.
The three successful applicants and their project titles are given below:
- “Morphological investigation of the mass movement deposit of Gschliefgraben in Lake Traunsee, Austria”, Heinz Brian Kreis, Sebastian Riegler, University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna
- “Identification of the submerged city of Pheia, the harbour of Ancient Olympia, destroyed by an earthquake in the 6th century AD”, Nikolaos Tatsis, University of Southern Denmark
- “Relationship between gas-bearing sediments and biogenic mounds in the Kalloni Gulf, Lesvos Island, Greece”, Alexandros Chronis, University of the Aegean
The organisers are looking forward to the results and presentation of the best project during Innomar’s workshop Seabed Acoustics 2013 and possibly in Hydro International.
The range of applications covered marine archaeology, hydrography, geology, coastal management, environmental studies and geo-hazards.
