Marine Geoscience Data System
Processed Sidescan Rasters (GeoTIFF grid format) derived from Geoswath data in Eastern Long Island Sound (2018)
This data set was acquired with a Kongsberg Geoswasth sonar system and assembled as part of the LIS2:UConn_Acoustics data compilation (Chief Scientist: Ivar Babb). The acquired sidescan data have been corrected for tides, sound velocity and ship motion, and merged into backscatter mosaics using Caris software. The data have been processed in two individual blocks. The final sidescan backscatter grids are in GeoTIFF (Raster) grid format. The rasters are projected in UTM NAD83 18N projection with 1m resolution.
