EW9413 Backscatter:Acoustic, Bathymetry:Swath, Sidescan
Processed ship-based Multibeam Sonar Data acquired near the Juan de Fuca Spreading Center during the Maurice Ewing expedition EW9413 (1994)
This data set was acquired with a ship-based Atlas Hydrosweep DS Multibeam Sonar system during Maurice Ewing expedition EW9413 conducted in 1994 (Chief Scientist: Dr. John Diebold). These data files are of MBSystem format and include Swath Bathymetry, Acoustic Backscatter, and Sidescan data and were processed by the GMRT Team using the open source MB-System multibeam sonar processing software as part of the GMRT Synthesis effort. These data are included in the GMRT Synthesis, version 1. Data were acquired as part of the project(s): U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office Survey, and funding was provided by NSF grant(s): N00014-94-1-0110.
