"Comprising 60 hydrophone groups which sample the reflected seismic wavefield at a horizontal accuracy of 25 x 25 cm, 3D Chirp provides the perfect base for shallow-water marine engineering. Here we present results where it has been used to identify unknown buried targets ranging from 0.3 m to 7.0 m in size."
