Abstract
DRDC is proposing a multi-year research program into development of decision aids for optimal scheduling of survey work in support of Maritime Route Survey operations. The overarching concept behind the project is that in order for a change detection approach to be most effective, an accurate baseline survey database must be maintained. If the local seabed is changing rapidly in response to natural forcing, surveys may be required more frequently. The first step in this research work is to perform an overview literature survey of existing scientific research work into monitoring and modeling of seabed rates of evolution. This work was completed under contract (W7707-4500979572), the present report being the primary deliverable, including a summary of the findings and an extensive bibliography.
