Marine StrataBox Sub-bottom Profiler
SyQuest StrataBox Sub-bottom Profiler
Item # 110000
The StrataBox is a portable high- resolution marine sediment imaging instrument capable of delivering 6 cm of marine sediment strata resolution with bottom penetration of up to 40 meters. It is designed exclusively for inshore and coastal geophysical marine survey up to 150 meters of water depth.
The sensor is extremely compact, interfaces directly to a standard laptop PC and comes complete with a light- weight and efficient acoustic transducer and PC software. Extreme ease of use, portability, and cost efficiency make this device a perfect choice for shallow water marine geophysical applications.
High-resolution sub-bottom systems have been used to detect and measure the thickness of dredged material deposits, detect hard substrate that has been covered by sedimentation, identify buried objects (such as cables and pipelines), and define the basement (or bedrock) layer for potential confined aquatic disposal sites for dredged material. Data with position information can be displayed in various 2D and 3D formats such as SonarWiz+SBP, Hypack Max or SBLogger. Data may also be saved in SEG-Y format for post-processing by most seismic software packages.
