    Join us for this FREE 1-day training seminar for aquatic search operations. Primarily you?ll learn the use of side scan sonar to search for objects underwater. Major topics are: an introduction to the types of sonar which can be used, a detailed discussion of how sonar images are created, how to conduct a search, and image priority. The target focus is the interpretation of side scan images. Presenting these topics will be Mr. Gene Ralston. Gene has travelled extensively throughout the US and internationally to search for missing victims. http://gralston1.home.mindspring.com/Sidescan.html

    The classroom based presentation will use multiple images and a step-by-step method that will assist searchers to better identify anomalies, regardless of make/model of the sss unit.

    And there?s more?an interactive presentation detailing K9 team training, certification, and deployment. Why, when, where, and how to use this resource.
