The applications of multibeam systems with their high resolutions and capability to eliminate "blind zones" between track lines, characteristic of single beam systems, had led to a major development in the investigation of submarine geomorphology. In this study we compare the results obtained with single and m u ltib e a m echosounders survey o f a sea m ou nt east o f Ibiza, Balearic islands. As illu s tra te d by these date sets the multibeam system is better able than the single-beam system to define the configuration of this high. Multibeam systems also led themshelves to the creation of computer generated physiographic diagrams displaying the information provided by the Simrad multibeam system available on the R/V Hesperides, and makes it possible for the investigator to infer the geologic processes that have molded the seamount
