Gridded bathymetry (Binary GRD Surfer format) of the Baker-Martinez fjord complex (Chile, 48°S) v2.
Second version of a bathymetric map of the Baker-Martinez fjord complex (Chile, 48°S) constructed from multiple data sets: multibeam echosounder data of Baker channel (Harada et al., 2008) and of Steffen fjord and Baker river delta (Vandekerkhove et al.), single beam echosounder data of Martinez channel (R/V Sur-Austral 2015/2016) and Jorge Montt fjord (Rivera et al., 2012, Moffat, 2014 and additional data from C. Moffat) and individual bathymetry points (digitized using Global Mapper software) from two SHOA nautical charts (SHOA, 2001, 2008). The heterogeneous data with distinct spatial resolution was gridded using the kriging method (3.6 arc-second resolution) in Surfer from Golden Software. Compared to the first version (Piret et al., 2017), this new version features improved bathymetry for the Martinez Channel. We intend to update this map when new data sets become available. The data file is in the Golden Software Surfer format 7 grid format and is suitable for import in ODV’s "Section View" windows following sections 3.3 and 3.4 of the Ocean Data View manual version 5.0: Geographic (unprojected lat/lon) Coordinate System – World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS84). The previous version of this bathymetry is available at (figshare).
Device Info
The data have been processed/modified to a level beyond that of basic quality control (e.g. final processed sonar data, photo-mosaics).
