Hi-res bathymetry with subsea lidar
A comparison of multibeam bathymetry (5-cm resolution), LiDAR bathymetry (1-cm resolution) and a photomosaic (2-mm resolution) of a clam community in Monterey Canyon, as mapped by MBARI's "Doc Ricketts" ROV from a 3-meter altitude. The lidar bathymetry is able to resolve individual clams and the trails left by their movement. Image: MBARI/3D at Depth.
