Abstract
    Both side-scan sonar and multibeam have evolved from expensive and complex systems to user-friendly and affordable techniques. Although both systems are tools to describe the morphology and nature of the seabed, they have inherent differences with both their merits and demerits. Although some hydrographers start to question the use of a side-scan sonar in projects in which a multibeam is already being deployed, it must be stressed that both techniques produce complementary results and that the integration of both systems offers a synergy that increases highly the value of the obtained survey results.
