Multibeam bathymetry raw data (Kongsberg EM 122 entire dataset) of RV METEOR during cruise M183


Raw multibeam bathymetry data were collected aboard RV Meteor during cruise M183 using a Kongsberg EM122 multibeam echosounder. The expedition took place during 13.07.2022 and 09.08.2022 from Ponta Delgada (Portugal) – St. John's (Canada) in the Central and Northern Atlantic Ocean. Data were recorded outside EEZs. Sound velocity profiles (SVP) were applied on the data for calibration. Please see environmental data and the cruise report for details. The data are unprocessed and can therefore contain incorrect depth measurements (artifacts) if not further processed. Note that refraction errors may occur when no proper SVP is applied. The main aim of M183 is to locate promising areas for future MeBo drilling and ridge flank observatory science.Acquisition and provision of the data are part of the DAM Underway Project and published according to the FAIR principles..
