Dr. Brown's research interests focus on the application of seafloor acoustics (multibeam sonar, sidescan sonar, synthetic aperture sonar, single beam acoustics) for studying, mapping and monitoring seafloor ecosystems. The research cuts across the fields of marine ecology, geology, geophysics, oceanography and ocean technology. Through close collaboration with a number of industry and government partners, his current R&D work is focused on exploring the application of new seafloor sensor technologies to improve the way we can map the seafloor for sustainable resource use and sound environmental stewardship. The research aims to help improve available seafloor sensor technologies, develop new systems, and refine the way that data from complementary sensor systems can be integrated to produce ocean floor maps.
