Observation typeRock and sediment sedimentology
ParameterBathymetry and Elevation
Data quality processing informationThe 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. Vertical resolution was approximately 0.025% of water depth.
