EW0007 Backscatter:Acoustic, Bathymetry:Swath
Raw ship-based Multibeam Sonar Data acquired during R/V Maurice Ewing expedition EW0007 (2000)
This data set was acquired with a ship-based Atlas Hydrosweep DS Multibeam Sonar system during Maurice Ewing expedition EW0007 conducted in 2000 (Chief Scientist: Dr. Brian Tucholke; Investigator(s): Dr. Brian Tucholke and Dr. W. Steven Holbrook). These data files are of MBSystem Compatible format and include Swath Bathymetry and Acoustic Backscatter data that have not been processed. Data were acquired as part of the project(s): Crustal Structure and Evolution of the Newfoundland-Iberia Non-Volcanic Rift: A Seismic Study of the Newfoundland Conjugate Margin, ODP Site Survey (Leg 210), and Studies of Continental Rifting and Extension on the Eastern Canadian Shelf (SCREECH) - 2-ship operations with R/V Oceanus, and funding was provided by NSF grant(s): OCE02-41940, OCE98-19053, and OCE98-19599.
