Multibeam bathymetry data from the Lau Back-arc Basin acquired during R/V Kilo Moana cruise KM0417 (2004, investigator Charles Langmuir)
This multibeam bathymetry data set was collected with a Simrad EM120 sonar system. The swath files are in MBSystem format and have been edited. The were generated as part of a project called Integrated Hydrothermal and Petrological Studies of the Eastern Lau Spreading Center. Funding was provided with NSF awards OCE02-41909, OCE02-41913, OCE02-42902, OCE02-42675, OCE02-42618, and OCE02-42114.
