Portuguese Institute for Oceans & Atmosphere
Portuguese Institute for Oceans & Atmosphere (IPMA) have chosen to purchase Qimera and Fledermaus software to use with their current workflow.
IPMA quoted "Qimera and Fledermaus will be used for a PhD thesis in the scope of MINEPLAT project (Assessment of the mineral resources potential in the continental shelf of Alentejo and of the environmental conditions caused by the tectonic uplift in the Pliocene-Quaternary) funded by Alentejo 2020 – Regional Operational Programme ALT20-03-0145-FEDER-000013. These tools will improve the workflow of multibeam and backscatter data processing acquired in the scope that project."
The above image is an excerpt of RAW multibeam data. A belt of bedforms in the middle shelf shaped after the gentle slope break. In this area, the bedforms are crescent shaped and generally oriented parallel to the NNE-SSW direction. The black lines represent 2D multichannel Ultra High Resolution Seismic (UHRS) data.
