Jenny Collier's Research Page: Seafloor Imaging and Processes

seafloor imaging I am part of a UK University consortium that maintains a suite of shallow water geophysical sonar (see background below). We have used this equipment (MBES, SSS and high-resolution seismic) to study a range of environmental and Earth system processes that have left a record on the seabed.
