Multibeam bathymetry raw data (Kongsberg EM 122 entire dataset) of RV MARIA S. MERIAN during cruise MSM119


Raw multibeam bathymetry data were collected aboard RV MARIA S. MERIAN during cruise MSM119 using a Kongsberg EM 122 multibeam echosounder. The expedition took place during 08.07.2023 - 12.08.2023 from St. John's to St. John's (Canada) in the Northern Atlantic Ocean. Data were recorded outside EEZs. MSM119 further investigates sedimentary ponds and crustal ridges along the eastern flank of the southernmost tip of the Reykjanes Ridge, Mid-Atlantic Ridge. 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. Acquisition and provision of the data are part of the DAM Underway Project and are according to the FAIR principles.

These data should not be used for navigational purposes.
