Sašo Moškon published article on methodology on fast and efficient mapping of marine meadows

14 January 2016.

Sašo Moškon has published an article (in slovene) in co-authorship with his doctoral thesis mentor dr. Janez Žibert  and co-mentor dr. Branko Kavšek in Geographical Bulletin (87-1/2015) edited by Association of Slovenian Geographers. English titled article Mapping of marine meadows using multibeam sonar data deals with­ the methodology of­ collecting ­acoustic­ data ­of ­the­ seabed ­and ­its ­use­ for ­mapping of ­marine meadows.­ The­ method­ enables­ fast­ and­ efficient­ mapping­ of­ large­ areas­ of­ marine­ meadows and provides­ continuous­ coverage­ throughout­ the­ region. ­In­ this­ paper­ we­ present­ various­ acoustic­ systems ­and­ their­ advantages ­and ­disadvantages ­for­ the­ mapping­ of­ the­ seabed.­ Further more ­we ­present­ acoustic data­ acquisition,­ acoustic­ data­ processing, ­calculation ­of­ the­ acoustic­ data­ features­ and­ machine­ learning methods­ used­ for­ mapping.­ The­ developed­ methodology ­was tested­ on­ real ­acoustic ­data,­ recorded ­in­ the Slovenian­ sea,­ in­ the­ area­ between­ Izola­ and­ Koper.
