Details of Bathymetry in the area of the Orinoco fan


Dataset identification

Title of datasetBathymetry in the area of the Orinoco fan
Narrative summary of datasetThis bathymetry was recovered in the framework of the MAYC project: Continental margin and deep basins: sedimentary record of paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic variability paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic variability. The research focuses on the study of the Orinoco submarine fan to address the study of the recent sedimentary record in order to define the processes and factors controlling its evolution
Summary of processing methodologySwath bathymetry was carried out with a Simrad EM12 S120, a multibeam echosounder of 12 kHz. Post-acquisition data processing, including identification and deletion of artefacts, was carried out with NEPTUME software
