EW9510 Backscatter:Acoustic, Bathymetry:Swath
Processed ship-based Multibeam Sonar Data from the Woodlark Back-arc Basin acquired during the Maurice Ewing expedition EW9510 (1995)
This data set was acquired with a ship-based Atlas Hydrosweep DS Multibeam Sonar system during Maurice Ewing expedition EW9510 conducted in 1995 (Chief Scientist: Dr. Brian Taylor). These data files are of MBSystem Compatible format and include Swath Bathymetry and Acoustic Backscatter 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): Propagating Rifts and Spreading Centers into Continents: The Woodlark Basin, and funding was provided by NSF grant(s): OCE92-01691 and OCE95-03505.
