About surface-ping intersections

A Surface-ping intersection, SP, is that part of a surface S which intersects with a ping, P. The diagrams below show a surface and multibeam ping (in a scene), the original ping with surface-ping intersection (in a multibeam echogram), and the resulting surface-ping intersection in a zoomed-in view. The surface-ping intersection is visible on a multibeam echogram as a line.
