Details of Formigas bank multibeam bathymetry


Dataset identification

Title of datasetFormigas bank multibeam bathymetry
Narrative summary of datasetMultibeam bathymetry of Formigas Bank gathered during MEDWAVES cruise September 2016. RV Sarmiento de Gamboa
Summary of processing methodologyPosition 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. Processed with CARIS 10 by Jesus Rivera from IEO. Resultant grid 30x30m. Resampled to 1/8 minutes.
Project/programmeMEDWAVES (MEDiterranean out flow WAter and Vulnerable EcosystemS) from ATLAS (A transatlantic assessment and deep-water ecosystem-based spatial management plan for Europe)
