Marine Geoscience Data System
RCSN234 Bathymetry
Near-Bottom Bathymetry Data (grid in netCDF format) from missions 20150305m1 and 20150306m2 in the Pescadero Basin, southern Gulf of California
This high-resolution gridded bathymetry data was acquired with a Reson SeaBat 7125 Multibeam sonar system on MBARI Mapping AUV missions 20150305m1 and 20150306m2 in Pescadero Basin during the 2015 R/V Rachel Carson cruise RCSN234 (chief scientist Dave Caress). The data files are in netCDF GMT-compatible format and were processed using the open-source MB-System multibeam sonar processing software. The netCDF grids are 1-meter horizontal resolution and are given in the WGS-84 geographic coordinate system. Navigation is DVL/USBL, adjusted with MBSystem in post-processing. Funding for this work was provided by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
