The paper’s aim is to evaluate mosaicking and analysis of backscatter angular responses as adequate techniques to quickly characterize the seafloor adjacent to shipwrecks, extending the results of a limited number of grabs. Both techniques have been applied to the casestudy of the VLCC Haven shipwreck site, applying the approach known as Geocoder among the available methods. From these results, the development of the research activities will attempt to improve techniques and to generalize a methodological approach for the analysis of backscatter coming from an area of seafloor with the presence of one or more anthropic objects.
