The data shown below was measured using a 32 element MTA. The operating frequency of the system was 5 MHz and the transducer spacing was 2 cm.

The test section was 50 meters in length and the width of the flume was 4 meters. The median sediment diameter was 0.19 mm, the wave height was 1 meter, and the wave period was 6.5 seconds.

The array was mounted on a moving carriage which travelled at a rate of 11 cm/sec.
