Abstract. A comparison of bathymetric sonar data has made by probing the same areas of the seabed multibeam echo sounder and interferometric side-scan sonar. The results of experimental data processing indicating quantitative and qualitative agreement between the sea bottom elevation measurements carried out by these systems are presented. The research has confirmed the possibility of using interferometric side-scan sonar to compute the depths in a broad swathe with  accuracy sufficient for the purposes of seabed mapping in areas with medium and weak forms of the bottom relief.

Key words: sonar systems, multibeam echosounder, interferometric side-scan sonar, sea floor bathymetry.
