Abstract
    Underwater landscapes including buried prehistoric landscapes are in focus of the international archaeological community as they are endangered by increasing commercial activities at sea and by unawareness. Especially for buried landscapes improved techniques or improved combinations of techniques for detection and evaluation are needed. A strategic research project in Flanders ‘SeArch – Archaeological Heritage in the North Sea’ (2013-2016) has the ambition to contribute to the solution of this challenge by developing an efficient methodology for imaging the sub-seafloor via the smart use of test-sites both in the offshore area and in the intertidal zone.
