COVER
Sub-bottom profiles collected by a KNUDSEN (Perth, Canada) Chirp SBP, acquired in Lake St-Joseph near Québec City, Canada, by Alexandre Normandeau, Patrick Lajeunesse and Geneviéve Philibert (Laboratoire de Géomorphologie Marine, Université Laval). The acoustic units represent a marine to lacustrine sedimentary transition affected by mass movements that occurred 1,000 years ago as the result of an earthquake. The data were processed and rendered in 3D using Chesapeake Technology, Inc.’s (Mountain View, California) SonarWiz 5.
