dc.description.abstractIdentifying the location of sunken logs is a task of considerable interest in today?s world economy. The main motive of this work is to find and locate sunken cypress logs that were lost during the transit to a lumber mills. Underwater logging is possible because of the fact that many of the logs were barely affected by the decades of submersion. Cypress logs, the types of logs used in this research have a natural resistant to rotting. The other probability for the logs not being affected significantly, even staying in water for decades, is the high density of the growth rings. The quality of these sunken logs is far superior because of their high density in growth rings and they have a high economic value compared to present day logs. Sidescan sonar is proposed for the work of locating the sunken logs. Based on various research and studies, which involve several similar projects, sidescan sonar is proposed to locate and identify these sunken targets. These images that resemble a cylinder in some aspects can then be compared with a template for pattern matching. Any image size that is not matched with the acceptable size can be rejected. Using this template matching procedure, the size of the object is matched and the logs can be located and recovered. Based on various technical papers and studies involving similar projects, conclusions were drawn and future work has been suggested.
