Sound velocity profiles were collected in order to map the sound velocity profile of the water column. The interferometric sonar systems acquires high-resolution bathymetric measurements in a swath. However, changes in the sound velocity profile with depth will affect the acousit ray path. The acoustic ray path must be accurately modeled in order to calculate accurate depth and position of individual soundings.
