Description 
Summary

The objectives of the project were to produce a complex sedimentological map of the Romanian sector of the Western Black Sea. In the framework of this project sub-bottom profiler data has been acquired using an EDO 3.5 kHz pinger equipment. The code of these measurements was SB-SED200. This information has been used to draft the bathymetry and the shallow structure of the investigated area. Data have been stored as hardcopies on paper. The positioning has been done by means of the HiFix system.
