Lakes (12 Expeditions)

Since 2004, MTU has started to carry out geophysical surveys on lakes. Since often the water depth is very shallow a particular equipment is needed to record reflections at high angles. With the availability of a single-hydrophone streamer (Arstech, 50 meters, 48 channels) this could be achieved. But for deeper lakes, also the conventional equipment was suitable and used.
