Processed ship-based Multibeam Sonar Data acquired during the 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 data and were processed at sea using the open source MB-System multibeam sonar processing software. 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, OCE98-19!\r 053, and OCE98-19599.
