Abstract: Underwater Acoustic methods have been extensively used to locate and identify marine objects. These applications include locating underwater vehicles, finding shipwrecks, imaging sediments and imaging bubble fields. Ocean is fairly transparent to sound and opaque to all other sources of radiation. Acoustics technology is the most effective tool for monitoring this environment because of the sound's ability to propagate long distance in water. We used single beam echo sounder to discriminate underwater objects. Development of the algorithm and applied it to detect and quantify underwater object such as fish, sea grass, and seabed. We found the detected target has different backscatter value.
