[1] Data example from a high-resolution bathymetric survey in a nearshore zone for underwater outfalls purposes. Rocky outcrops are imaged in the surf zone. Water depth 3 m - 30 m.

[2] Data example from a high-resolution bathymetric survey in a nearshore zone for sediment dredging purposes. Water depth 1 m - 14 m.

[3] Data example from a high-resolution bathymetric survey in a lacustrine zone for seafloor reconnaissance purposes. Water depth 3 m - 20 m.

[4] Data example from a high-resolution bathymetric survey in a coastal area to find submeged tanks. Water depth 1 m - 20 m.

[5] Data example from a high-resolution sidescan sonar survey to locate rocky outcrops in a nearshore zone. Rocky outcrops are surrounded by patches of sand waves. Water depth 5 m - 15 m.

[6] Data example from a high-resolution sidescan sonar survey to locate rocky outcrops in a nearshore zone. Rocky outcrops and sand waves are imaged in the surf zone. Water depth 2 m - 25 m.

[7] Data example from a high-resolution sidescan sonar survey to locate rocky outcrops in a nearshore zone. No rocky outcrops were found in the surf zone, fine-to-coarser grained sediments are interpreted instead. Water depth 4 m - 20 m.

[8] Data example from a high-resolution sidescan sonar survey to locate rocky outcrops in a nearshore zone. Rocky outcrops are surrounded by sandy sediments in the surf zone. Water depth 8 m - 20 m.

[9] Data example from a high-resolution sidescan sonar survey to locate rocky outcrops in a nearshore zone. Two patterns are observed in the surf zone: (1) Rocks are outcropping at the seafloor covering a large portion of the surveyed area, (2) Sandy sediments cover the rest of the surveyed area. Water depth 9 m - 15 m.

[10] Data example from a high-resolution seismic reflection survey to image the surficial layer of unconsolidated sediments in a nearshore zone. Two patterns are observed: (1) In shallower water depths (close to the surf zone), an interpreted coarse-grained sediment cover shows no laminations, (2) In deeper water depths, fine-grained sediment packages show laminations. Water depth 3 m - 25 m.

[11] Data example from a high-resolution seismic reflection survey to quantify the surficial layer of unconsolidated sediments in a nearshore zone. In both shallower and deeper water depths, the seismic character of near-seafloor sediments shows that the sedimentary cover is composed of corser-grained sediments (sands to gravels) with a volume of ~90 000 m3. Water depth 18 m - 28 m.
