KEGS presents: High resolution near-shore geophysical surveys using an AUV with an integrated magnetometer

Detecting near-surface ferro-metallic objects is a common objective in marine geophysics, with many applications including archaeology, mapping of pipelines or telecommunications cables, or detecting UXOs. The recent integration of an Explorer Overhauser marine magnetometer with an Iver Autonomous Underwater Vehicle has resulted in the ability to detect smaller targets and position them more accurately than a conventional boat-towed survey.

Presented by Doug Hrvoic, president and owner of Marine Magnetics, at the Canadian Exploration Geophysical Society (KEGS) meeting on April 12, 2016.
