    In order to fulfill a need for more information about the microrelief of the sea floor, the U.S. Navy Electronics Laboratory (NEL) has developed a new type of lowered oceanographic equipment. This consists of a compact combination of proven underwater instruments which enables the simultaneous and efficient collection of related data, including stereoscopic bottom photographs for photogrammetric measurements, sampling of sediments and bottom water, and measurements of currents. The system has been used over a range of depths and geographic locations and the knowledge gained from the study of the collected data is making substantial contributions to the solution of problems involving underwater sound.
