In this research area we have developed protocols to map seabed bedrock geology from remotely sensed acoustic imagery (MBES and SBES). I have worked with a number of collaborators, most recently with those from the British Geological Survey to extend our knowledge of the UK's geological resources offshore. Some of this work has taken place within the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, famed for its diverse geology.
