Recognition of the superior data and coverage from multibeam echosounders (MBES) has been widespread and is increasing rapidly. In addition to the significant value of ensonification of a swath as compared to a profile of bathymetric data, the acoustic data have been frequently presented as "psuedo-sidescan-sonar". Field programs conducted during 2001 using Reson MBES systems and TritonElics software gave us the opportunity to develop enhanced acoustic imagery by manipulation of the backscatter information within each MBES beam. This work has resulted in improved MBES data products using new acquisition and processing techniques.
