An underwater communication cable detected in Ocean City, NJ. The water is up to 20' deep and the cable is at burial depths of up to 8'.
Accurately tracing underwater pipes/cables is a common and critical locating application for dredging, bridge construction and other applications. For locating pipes and cables, the sensing antennas should be as close as possible to the target line, so it is not practical to locate lines buried under a river or seabed from the surface.
