Jane Denny presented the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Woods Hole Field Center (WHFC)'s shallow-water-mapping techniques at a 1-day workshop sponsored by the Southern Region of the Hydrographic Society of the United Kingdom (UK).

Held in Reading, UK, on November 28, 2002, the workshop was entitled "Multibeam Echosounding—the Total Inshore Solution? Overcoming the Shallow Water Challenge." It had a diverse audience, among which were academics; hydrographers; representatives of the Royal Navy, the British Geological Survey, the Geological Survey of Ireland, and UK government and private environmental organizations; and various vendors of multibeam echosounders, interferometric sonars, and attitude sensors.

Discussions ranged from survey operations to comparisons between swath-bathymetric systems, and the wide application of these systems. Additionally, the USGS' geologic applications of swath bathymetry were presented at SEA (Group) Ltd. in Beckington, UK, the manufacturer of the Submetrix 2000 Series interferometric sonar used by the WHFC Sea Floor Mapping Group.
