Abstract and Keywords
This chapter, which describes the most commonly used acoustic techniques for the detection and characterization of underwater archaeological material, considers the effectiveness of these techniques and their potential for wetland research as well as the challenges and issues that could be encountered in such environments. These techniques include Real Time Kinematic-GPS, single-beam echo sounders and sub-bottom profilers, side-scan sonars and swath bathymetry sonars, and the magnetometer and bathymetric LiDAR (Light Detecting and Ranging).
