KM0503 Backscatter:Acoustic
MARGINS:Funded
Processed Acoustic Backscatter Grids (NetCDF:GMT format) derived from ship-based Multibeam Sonar Data from the New Zealand Margin acquired during the Kilo Moana expedition KM0503 (2005)
This data set was acquired with a ship-based Kongsberg EM120 Multibeam Sonar system during Kilo Moana expedition KM0503 conducted in 2005 (Chief Scientist: Dr. Clark Alexander). These data files are of NetCDF Grid format and include gridded Acoustic Backscatter data and were processed after data collection. Data were acquired as part of the project(s): Sediment Dynamics on the Actively Deforming Waipaoa Continental Slope: An Examination of A Dispersal System Sink, and funding was provided by NSF grant(s): OCE04-05726, OCE04-05785, OCE04-52166, and OCE06-46771.
