TN234 Backscatter:Acoustic, Bathymetry:Swath, Sidescan
Processed near-bottom Multibeam Sonar Data (version 2) from the Lau Back-arc Basin acquired with AUV D. Allan B. during the Thomas G. Thompson expedition TN234 (2009)
This data set was acquired with a Reson SeaBat 7125 Multibeam Sonar system on the AUV D. Allan B. during Thomas G. Thompson expedition TN234 conducted in 2009 (Chief Scientist: Dr. Joseph Resing; Investigator(s): Dr. David Clague). These data files are of MBSystem-compatible format and include Sidescan, Acoustic Backscatter, and Swath Bathymetry data and were processed at sea using the open source MB-System multibeam sonar processing software. Data were acquired as part of the project(s): Neovolcanic activity in the NE Lau Basin - Cruise Webpage and Northern Lau/Tonga Eruption Rapid Response - MARGINS, and funding was provided by NSF grant(s): OCE09-29411, OCE09-29881, OCE09-30025, and OCE09-34660.
