Dataset identification

Title of datasetBathymetry ALBA 2
Narrative summary of datasetThe multibeam bathymetry was obtained using a multibeam Simrad EM-12 S120 swath bathymetry echosounder, with full coverage of the study area. This system transmitted 81 acoustic beams to the seafloor with a total beam angle of 90º, covering a sector of the seafloor whose width equals twice the water depth.
Summary of processing methodologyThe raw data were post-processed using the multibeam echosounder processing program "Neptune" developed by SIMRAD Systems.
