Marine Geoscience Data System
LIS2:UConn_Acoustics Bathymetry:Swath, Sidescan, Tide:Height, Velocity:Sound
Raw Geoswath bathymetry and sidescan data (RFF format) in Eastern Long Island Sound (2018)
This data set was acquired with a pole-mounted Kongsberg Geoswasth sonar system and assembled as part of the LIS2:UConn_Acoustics data compilation (Chief Scientist: Ivar Babb). The data was collected in different survey segments A1 to A6 and B1 to B6 using the UConn survey vessel R/V Lowell Weicker. Each survey segment zipped file contains raw and auxiliary data. The raw files are in RFF format and may be read with processing packages such as Caris and SonarWiz. Also included are sound velocity files and tide correction files. Funding was provided by the Long Island Sound Seafloor Mapping Fund administered cooperatively by the EPA Long Island Sound Study and the Connecticut Department of Energy Protection (DEEP).
