"Named for the bird-like blips it makes in action, GeoChirp 3-D is able to generate three-dimensional images (http://us.rd.yahoo.com/dailynews/space/sc_space/storytext/3dimagesgivenewlifetooldshipwrecks/17462519/SIG=16212mdik/*http://www.livescience.com/php/multimedia/imagedisplay/img_display.php?pic=051219_chirp_02.gif&cap=Wreck+of+the+Currajong+in+Sydney+Harbour,+Australia,+using+3D+imaging.+Credit%3A+GeoAcoustics) of just about anything lying beneath the seafloor, including shipwrecks hidden under years of muck and sand build-up.


Chirp is "a seismic system that works by firing sound waves at the seafloor and measuring the reflections as they bounce back from objects and different rock layers in the seabed," writes the UK's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) in a recent edition of their quarterly publication Newsline."

So instead of modeling things, we can just dump them in water? I like it :)

You think we can 'model' out Jack Thompson?

It probably doesn't work if you're moving, so we'd just have to keep modelling him until he quits kicking and squirming.
