Abstract: Ship motion affects quality of acoustic data collected by various acoustic remote sensing systems used for bottom and fisheries surveying. The angular position of an acoustic beam changes in time from its nominal position vertical to sea surface. This motion affects the acoustic returns from the bottom and other targets by changing their intensity and arrival times. In this paper we illustrate these effects on bottom returns obtained using single beam sonar.
