FK200126 Backscatter:Acoustic, Bathymetry:Swath, Sidescan
Processed EM302 Acoustic Backscatter, Sidescan and Swath Bathymetry Data acquired during R/V Falkor expedition FK200126 (2020)
This data set was acquired with a Kongsberg Maritime EM302 Multibeam Sonar during R/V Falkor expedition FK200126 conducted in 2020 (Chief Scientist: Dr. Trotter Julie, Investigators: Dr. Federica Foglini, Dr. Alessandro Remia, Dr. Trotter Julie, Dr. Montagna Paolo). These data files are of MBSystem-compatible format and include Acoustic Backscatter, Sidescan and Swath Bathymetry data that were processed after acquisition. This research was partly conducted in the Bremer Marine Park and Perth Canyon Marine Park under permit number PA2019-00080-1(2), issued by the Director of National Parks, Australia. This work was supported by research funding from the Australian Research Council to JT (FT160100259) and MM, JT, PM, MT (DP21012896), as well as the Italian National Programme of Antarctic Research (PNRA16-00069 Graceful Project) to PM and MT.
