    In this workshop participants will be introduced to QPS Qimera multibeam processing workflows through live software demonstrations.

Software demonstrations will include patch test, wobble test, and the new automatic sound speed inversion tool released with Qimera 1.6. Additionally participants will learn how to process water-column data to quickly add additional soundings to a gridded surface, or digitize a point cloud to float above a gridded surface.
