Multibeam bathymetry raw data (Kongsberg EM 122 entire dataset) of RV MARIA S. MERIAN during cruise MSM105


Raw multibeam bathymetry data were collected aboard RV MARIA S. MERIAN during cruise MSM105 using a Kongsberg EM122 multibeam echosounder. The expedition took place during 11.01.2022 and 23.02.2022 from Walvis Bay (Namibia) - Mindelo (Cape Verde) in the Northern and Central 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 MSM105 was to study the relationships between physical boundary conditions and process rates, microbial activities, and the macrobenthic community in the present and recent past with an interdisciplinary approach within the framework of the BMBF research project EVAR. Acquisition and provision of the data are part of the DAM Underway Project.

These data should not be used for navigational purposes.
