    Explanation of Terms Beam angle: The angle that sound waves spread out from the transducer. Sound waves spread out in a conical manner taking the center of the bottom surface of the transducer at the apex of the cone. Bubbling: The phenomenon where the image of the seabed is interrupted due to air bubbles caused by the ship's hull or the propeller during a voyage.

    This information is gained by using ultrasonic waves sent from the transducer that are then reflected off the sea bottom and picked up again by the transducer. The JFE-380 also has the following functions: (1) depth alarm, (2) power fail alarm, (3) output of depth data, (4) output of depth and power fail alarms.

  • Page 75: Seabed Quality Change

    Seabed Quality Change Rock In case of a hard seabed composed of rocks etc., its return trails long, as shown in right chart. In case of a soft seabed made of mud, seaweed, etc., they poorly reflect an ultrasonic wave to result in thin recording of the seabed with short trail.

  • Page 76: Abrupt-sloped Seabed

    Abrupt-Sloped Seabed Side lobe False echo A dim echo may sometimes appear along an abrupt slope of seabed, as if it were floating above the slope, when recording. In case of flat seabed, thin second return of seabed may sometimes appear, which is slightly below the actual seabed.

  • Page 77

    The echo of a seabed with abrupt slope is recorded as a lone difficult to see and less discriminative, since it tends to accompany with a false echo due to the side lobe and the inherent property of directivity. In particular, a seabed with abrupt slope and heavily rugged surface provided an echo very difficult to display on the recording.
