Methodologies for seabed substrate characterisation using multibeam bathymetry, backscatter, and video data: A case study for the Eastern Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, Northern Australia

The use of multibeam bathymetry, backscatter data and their derivatives together with geophysical data, sediment samples, biological collections and underwater video/still footage to generate seabed habitat maps is an active research interest of Geoscience Australia. The obvious advantage over other techniques is that the multibeam system offers the creation of spatially continuous maps. This report presents the results of an investigation of the potential use of multibeam data (bathymetry, backscatter and their derivatives) to classify/predict the seabed substrate. Principally, the aim was to reliably and repeatedly distinguish hard from soft terrain in Van Diemen Rise of eastern Joseph Bonaparte Gulf using two independent approaches: a classification-based approach and a prediction-based approach.
