Description 
Summary

The methodology of prospecting with acoustic systems provides continuous profiles of the bottom which, in this case, are of good quality. Penetrations 30 m below the bottom have been achieved, and the recent sedimentary sequences of the coastal lagoon may be identified. The data do not need to be treated with special equipment.
