The objectives of this project were to develop the capability of generating high-resolution topographic models of the seafloor from 35-mm stereo photographs; to produce such models from existing photographs of cobalt-rich manganese crust deposits; and to optimize the configuration of the existing Hawaii undersea research laboratory (hurl) camera system for stereo photograph collection and correlation of acoustic data with the photographic ground-truth. The study also shows how stereo photography and acoustic data collection can be used together to produce relatively inexpensive estimates of the critical topographic variables of the seafloor. Preliminary design specifications for a high-frequency side-scan sonar system were also determined.
