Abstract
A 2 km square area of seabed in Juan de Fuca Strait was surveyed in 1993 with a Mesotech 972 sidescan sonar. The area has significant mine-sized clutter, rocks and boulders up to several meters across. The sonar data were geocoded and mosaiced into one geographically correct image. The mosaic was scanned for objects greater than 0.5 m in diameter. The report presents an analysis of the size distribution of objects in this area and the implications for mine detection in cluttered seabeds.
