    Data types, collection and processing

    Observation typeGravity, magnetics and bathymetry
    ParameterBathymetry and Elevation
    Instrument typemulti-beam echosounders
    Instrument nameAtlas Hydrographic Hydrosweep DS 3 multibeam echo sounder
    Platform typeresearch vessel
    Platform nameSarmiento de Gamboa
    Data quality processing informationUsed MBES was a Hydrosweep DS-3 model from ATLAS. Beam width is 1º along tarck by 1º across track. Position records from GPS and vessel attitude is controlled by a POS MV unit from Applanix. Sound refraction is corrected by real time measurements of the sound velocity at the transducer depth in addition to sound velocity profiles of the water column gathered from different CTD casts taken before and after each survey. The software for procesing bathimetric data was CARIS 10. Resulting grid has been resampled to 1/8 minute grid georreferenced to mercator WGS84 in decimal degrees. Format: Geotiff to open with cartographyc and GIS softwre (ie. ArcGIS, QGIS)
