Reduction of refraction effects due to inadequate sound velocity profile measurements in multibeam echosounder systems

The single most important acoustical variable in the water is its speed. The average speed of sound in the ocean is about 1500 m/s, but its precise value in a location is strongly depends on temperature, pressure and salinity of that particular location. These factors change rapidly in time and spac...
