EW9910 Backscatter:Acoustic, Bathymetry:Swath
Processed ship-based Multibeam Sonar Data from the Woodlark Back-arc Basin acquired during the Maurice Ewing expedition EW9910 (1999)
This data set was acquired with a ship-based Atlas Hydrosweep DS Multibeam Sonar system during Maurice Ewing expedition EW9910 conducted in 1999 (Chief Scientist: Dr. John Mutter; Investigator(s): Dr. Andrew Goodliffe). These data files are of MBSystem Compatible format and include Acoustic Backscatter and 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): Natural Seismicity Investigation of Active Continental Breakup in the Western Woodlark Basin, and funding was provided by NSF grant(s): OCE01-17451, OCE01-18531, OCE01-18568, OCE97-30567, OCE97-30824, OCE97-30864, OCE97-30972, and OCE99-96317.
