Chirp sub-bottom profilers are equipment that in typically operate above 2 kHz, up to several tens of kHz frequency range. The wider the bandwidth, the better the resolution. The lower the frequency, the better the penetration.
Chirp sub-bottom profilers can reach depths down to several kilometers, but the system configuration can be optimized for the best portability and economy depending on specific needs.
Meridata offers optimized chirp sub-bottom profiling solutions.
Our systems can be customized to support different frequency bands and transducer/array configurations to match the clients requirements. These optimized system configurations are always well tuned for the performance needed.
Meridata HD SBP's UHF Chirp can achieve a layer resolution of just three centimeters in densely varved fine sediments.
Meridata supplies fully integrated systems for chirp sub-bottom profiling survey. A typical system includes:
Meridata HD SBP systems are future-proof and can later be extended with additional chirp frequency bands and optional boomer and sparker sub-systems for even lower frequency, deeper penetration needs.
