AbstractCinematic marine sounding records were produced using radar to fix the positions at which echo soundings were taken. A merchant marine radar display was photographed simulanteously with a depth-recorder display to produce a permanent record of depth and position. The experimental runs were carried out in a small lake, and it was found that the lake could be rapidly and accurately sounded by this method. The use for radar for position fixing not only greatly accelerated the sounding program but allowed the work to be carried out under all conditions of visibility and eliminated the need for land-based position fixing.
