Processed Multibeam Sonar Data (version 2) from the Pacific Ocean from Alaska to Hawaii acquired during Nathaniel B. Palmer expedition NBP0304B (2003)
This data set was acquired with a Kongsberg model EM120 multibeam sonar system during Nathaniel B. Palmer expedition NBP0304B conducted in 2003 (Chief Scientist: Dr. Steve Cande). These data files include Acoustic Backscatter, Sidescan, Swath Bathymetry data and were processed at sea using the open source MB-System multibeam sonar processing software. These data are included in the GMRT Synthesis, beginning with version 1. Data were acquired as part of the project(s): Production Observation Through Another Translatitudinal Oceanic Expedition (POTATOE); Late Cretaceous and Cenozoic Reconstructions of the Southwest Pacific, and funding was provided by the U.S. National Science Foundation.
